Enable smarter decision making across your organization
Cloud computing  is the on-demand availability of computer system resources , especially data storage cloud storage and computing power , without direct active management by the user. If the connection to the user is relatively close, it may be designated an edge server. Clouds may be limited to a single organization enterprise clouds   , or be available to multiple organizations public cloud. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale. Advocates of public and hybrid clouds note that cloud computing allows companies to avoid or minimize up-front IT infrastructure costs. Proponents also claim that cloud computing allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and that it enables IT teams to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable demand,    providing the burst computing capability: high computing power at certain periods of peak demand. Cloud providers typically use a "pay-as-you-go" model, which can lead to unexpected operating expenses if administrators are not familiarized with cloud-pricing models. The availability of high-capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage devices as well as the widespread adoption of hardware virtualization , service-oriented architecture and autonomic and utility computing has led to growth in cloud computing. Cloud computing was popularized with Amazon.
Fully control where your data is stored at all times
Traditional hosting comes mainly in two forms, dedicated and shared. With dedicated hosting, a company pays for the complete resources of one or more servers from a service provider. The client has a set amount of dedicated bandwidth, CPU, RAM, and drive space, and the client has full control over the servers resources. Traditional hosting, especially shared hosting, has its drawbacks though. Because the resources of a single server are shared among a number of different websites, spikes in traffic to those websites can mean decreased performance for your own. Security breaches and other performance issues on other sites make take yours down as well. If the server itself experiences technical problems, everyone hosted on that server will be affected.
You can deploy ownCloud in your own data center on-premises, at a trusted service provider or choose ownCloud. Be confident your data storage and maintenance complies with regulation. Increase security through measures like multi-factor authentication, encryption and file lifecycle management. Give staff an easy, flexible and secure way to share files and folders.
