Nextcloud GmbH and iXsystems partner to offer security and productivity

Nextcloud GmbH, the company behind the on-premise content collaboration platform, and iXsystems inc., developer of the Open Storage platform, are collaborating to bring the full suite of Nextcloud Hub features to TrueNAS.

Tens of thousands of TrueNAS systems already run Nextcloud and availability of a supported, wel-integrated offering will give larger organizations more confidence to deploy, according to the vendors.

“As self-funded companies that share a strong open source philosophy, Nextcloud and TrueNAS are natural partners,” said Frank Karlitschek, CEO and founder, Nextcloud. “Our mutual customers will benefit from an open and flexible platform with strong enterprise support capable of delivering efficient collaboration at any scale.”

iXsystems’ TrueNAS systems deliver flexible Open Storage, scaling from small home servers to 20PB+ storage platforms.

TrueCommand offers simple management with docker and cloud deployment options. Nextcloud Hub is available as a supported app on the TrueNAS platform and can be easily deployed on new installations.

TrueNAS systems will offer the full Nextcloud Hub experience with Files, Groupware, Talk, and Collaborate Online based office document editing.

TrueNAS users will gain immediate access to easy, efficient document storage, sharing, and real-time collaboration and communication.

Both Nextcloud and TrueNAS provide an extensive layer of security and compliance capabilities. Storage capacity can be scaled without any per-user restrictions or additional license fees.

“Enterprise storage needs continue to explode, only overtaken by the growth of compliance and privacy challenges,” said Brett Davis, EVP, iXsystems. “iXsystems and Nextcloud are uniquely capable of delivering a platform that tackles these two challenges at once.”
