The difference between owncloud and Nextcloud

ownCloud and Nextcloud are both open-source, self-hosted cloud storage solutions that allow users to store, share, and synchronize files, calendars, contacts, and more. Although they share similarities, there are key differences between the two platforms:


wnCloud was founded in 2010 by Frank Karlitschek, who later left the company in 2016 to create Nextcloud. Nextcloud is thus a fork of ownCloud, with many of the same underlying components and ideas, but with a different development team and direction.

Development approach

Nextcloud has a more community-focused approach to development, with a more open and transparent development process. ownCloud, on the other hand, has a more business-centric approach, with a greater emphasis on enterprise customers.

Licensing and features

Nextcloud is fully open-source, and all its features are available in the free version. ownCloud has a dual licensing model, with a free, open-source community edition and a paid, proprietary enterprise edition that offers additional features and support.

Ecosystem and integrations

Nextcloud has a more extensive app ecosystem, with a larger number of plugins and integrations available to extend its functionality. ownCloud's app ecosystem is more limited, particularly in the free, community edition.


Both platforms prioritize security, but Nextcloud has implemented more advanced security features, such as end-to-end encryption and advanced server-side encryption. ownCloud also offers encryption, but its more advanced features are available in the enterprise edition.

Community and support

Nextcloud has a more active community of users and developers, which can lead to faster updates, more frequent bug fixes, and better overall support. ownCloud has a smaller community and provides more extensive support through its enterprise edition.

Nextcloud is a more community-focused, open-source solution with a broader ecosystem and more advanced security features. ownCloud is more business-centric, with a dual licensing model and a greater emphasis on enterprise customers. The right choice will depend on your specific needs, preferences, and priorities.
