Pros: I've been using Nextcloud as a replacement for Google Drive and Google Docs for the last four or five years. It has a ton of really great apps that I can install that can replicate popular Google services. For instance, I can use the Nextcloud desktop and mobile sync clients to have Google Drive like functionality. I can install a calendar app that gives me Google Calender functionality. There are apps for tasks, documents, and e-mail that all work really well, and again, replicate that Google functionality that we've all come to be fans of. However, my favorite feature is the "News" app that lets me setup all of my RSS feeds and view them in a browser. Previously I had used Google Reader, but when Google shut down that product, it left me searching for a replacement. I tried several other options, but eventually stumbled onto Nextcloud. Initially I only wanted to use Nextcloud for the News app, but when I saw everything that it could do, I migrated away from Google entirely and now use my self hosted Nextcloud instance which gives me full control over my documents and files.

Cons: The biggest con for me with this application is it never upgrades properly. I use a third party hosting provider called Dreamhost, and whenever I attempt to do an automatic or manual upgrade to my Nextcloud instance, I end up breaking it and have to rebuild it from scratch. I don't know if this is due to something on my hosting provider's end, but every single time I've attempted to do an upgrade it has failed.

Additionally, community support can sometimes be lacking. Since this is an open source product, you have to rely on a lot of forum posts and blog entries to find solutions to your problems. Sometiems that can be frustrating.

Overall: Centralization of my files and documents, ease of management and use, and desktop/mobile clients for every platform that I use (Windows, Mac, iOS). Additionally, it's completely free and does all the things that I need it to do.

Forget Dropbox i have Nextcloud!

Pros: I was looking for a solution in my company for media storage, assign share links to my client's and employees, to be able to have control over their accounts, make announcements, edit folder permissions, commenting on shared files/links, and all of that is possible for me in Nextcloud!

I am blowned away the many feature si am able to use on my everyday basis in my company.

Something i really like is the drop file feature, i can make a folder and share that link for upload only, without viewing content etc. It is a huge help to drop suggestions etc.

I use Nextcloud with Mountain Duck on my companies computer, this way everyone can access their Nextcloud server like if it was a external hardrive.

Also i can get all addons directly from their library,

Cons: I would love to have more control over the styles on every elements, even thou it is possible to create my own theme, it would need lot's of coding.

Some buttons are not in the best position, i have to rely on custom css to change some buttons.

Overall: I can have all my company's data in a secure place and share files with customers with editing options. I use this for my business everyday!

Very easy to install and maintain, updating is a breeze with the builtin updater. Good documentation

Pros: Nextcloud has proved to be very easy to install and maintain (built-in updater helps install new releases in short time without hassles). CalDav and CardDav servers as well as a choice of emailapps make Nextcloud more than just private cloud storage. Ideal small business server

Cons: Nextcloud is opensource software that you will have to install and administer yourself. For larger organizations Nextcloud offers comprehensive support contracts. The fact that the German Federal government chose Nextcloud as its cloud solution speaks for itself.

Overall: Highly reliable and secure smail business server

Pros: it's a great solution for a personal document cloud with possibility to add multiple features like note, collaborations, photo store.... It is easy to install and the combination with nginx offer a really trustable, scalable and high performance platform. For whatever issue or customization need you can find the suitable solution on line. Definetly a suggested choice.

Cons: No real constrain. I hope thhats it will be improved features like chat or video conference, and increase the offer for app device

Overall: i can easy store and manage all my private documents from multiple devices

Pros: Very easy to setup and use. Enforces / reminds you to use safe settings.

Easy for users as well. Both in the client and the web based viewer.

We only use the file storage system and this is very stable and reliable.

The mobile app is already good and well integrated into the OSes

And it's open source :)

Cons: The desktop is client sometimes slow and hogging users CPUs when transferring many files. Some other bugs in the client are the greatest problem but they improve slowly.

Overall: My team can work from anywhere without the hassle of connecting to networkshares over VPN

Easy to setup and free SSL certificate when setting up.

Has lots of add ons that you can install for free to add more features.

Built in chat with video and screen sharing.

Cons: A bit advanced setup if you have never setup a server before.

Have to be able to setup router ports to be able to access from outside your network.

Overall: Having Free cloud storage you control with free mobile apps

The deployment was easy. Forums offered lots of solutions to common issues.

Pros: The ability for it to be hosted on a wide variety of platform including on NAS was brilliant.

Sharing was easy, creating users was a breeze. And because it syncs the local copy rather than a network share, everyone still has access to the files when the network is down!

Native apps on iOS and Android was great!

Cons: Folders are shared by owner. If the owner of the folder leaves the system, you will need command line access to transfer ownership of the folders. Workaround was to download the entire folder and upload it again.

Overall: Secure, personal cloud space with no capacity limit!

Native mobile and desktop apps!

Very flexible framework with a lot of apps besides file sharing

Pros: Next to files, contacts and calendars you could store notes, read news, listen to music, create mindmaps and many more

Cons: You have to maintain your own server to keep the data absolute private. You need an DDNS service as well.

Overall: I am independant from organizations like Dropbox or Google.

Pros: rich of functions

easy integration with PC desktop (exactly like Dropbox)

easy integration with Android mobile

Cons: for domestic usage you can get big saving of money against 2 terabyte web services provided by Google / Dropbox / Microsoft etc. and small cost of hardware (raspberry plus 2 terabyte HD USB 3 is much lower than QNAP Nas).

Overall: save of money, immediate integration with mobile devices, quick portability from other service (like Dropbox)

Pros: Best self-hosted cloud! It can be installed even on a shared-hosting with high flexibility via apps.

Cons: Few things needs to fix or enhance for example, it should not disable apps for updating next cloud itself.
