ownCloud is open source file sync and share software for everyone from individuals operating the free ownCloud Community Edition, to large enterprises and service providers operating the ownCloud Enterprise Edition. ownCloud provides a safe, secure, and compliant file synchronization and sharing solution on servers that you control.

With ownCloud you can share one or more files and folders on your computer, and synchronize them with your ownCloud server.
