Dear friends, hacktivists and open source business people,
 
As we mentioned in our previous newsletter, we are exceedingly happy to announce that we are offering professional Nextcloud services.
For those who are not so familiar, Nextcloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. It is functionally similar to Dropbox and Google Drive, although Nextcloud is free and open-source, allowing anyone to install and operate it on a private server.
 

With this Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution you receive a dedicated Nextcloud instance with the latest security updates and professional support in case you need it. Nextcloud is fully recommended if you need a new collaborative cloud platform, but having your data private and secure is something of high importance to you. One of the reasons might be the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or one of the many security risks any organization is facing today. In contrast to proprietary services like Dropbox, the open architecture of Nextcloud allows added functionality to the server in the form of applications and enables you and your company to have full control of your data.

Our presence in FOSDEM

FOSDEM 2019 was our first year there as a company and we were happy to arrange very productive meetings which resulted in more consolidated partnerships. In a very crowded place, with talks and workshops rooms where you had to wait for an hour in the queue to get in, we managed to check out some great talks we were interested in, and also attend various community meetups. Boris and Redon prepared a blog post with all the details and you can find it here: blog.collective68.tech/fosdem-2019/
