ownCloud, the popular open source enterprise file sync and share project, will be available on Fedora 18, completing an impressive list of other important Linux distributions.
The developers of ownCloud
think that Ubuntu, Fedora, and SUSE will have a better way of securing, syncing, and sharing their data across platforms.
“The (Fedora) Engineering Steering Committee has also signed off … a plan to add the client and server software for the ownCloud cloud platform; this allows users to host and access files and personal data, such as addresses and calendar entries, from a range of devices.”
ownCloud 4 can now mount external files systems, including Dropbox, FTP and Google Drive, enabling users to have all their file sync and share tools in a single ownCloud interface.
The community edition of ownCloud now has over 450,000 users, and it’s open source.
