Cloud Collaboration

A secure, centralised location for your important files & team tools.

Our NextCloud & OwnCloud collaboration servers enable you, your family & co-workers to securely transfer files to & from all your devices.

It's similar to services like Dropbox & Google Drive, but private & more secure.

Online file editing can also be configured with free tools like Collabora (free up to 10 users).

Your own private collaboration server ensures that your information (text & visual) is not analysed by data mining companies like Google, Microsoft, etc.

Some feature include:

  • Private & secure
  • Centralised backup of your files
  • Multiple device support (desktop, phone, etc.)
  • Easy file sharing
  • Automated file & folder synchronisation
  • Group communication (video & audio)
  • Shared & private calendars/contacts
  • Send & receive email


OwnCloud development started in 2010 as an open source alternative to proprietary file synchronisation & sharing services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

Users can access their accounts via any web browser, or via client application software, which also performs automated file synchronisation.

Software is available for most major distributions including Windows, Linux, iOS & Android.


NextCloud is a 2016 fork of OwnCloud by some of the OwnCloud engineers which continues under very active development.

At this point NextCloud seems to be more feature rich than OwnCloud.

Again, software is available for most major distributions like Windows, iOS & Android.

Virtual Infrastructure Benefits

Farbyte's cloud virtual server service dramatically reduces costs compared on-premise & co-located server solutions.

In addition, our UK cloud services cost only around 10% of other cloud providers like AWS, Azure & Google Cloud!

There are no hardware devices to purchase, maintain, configure & upgrade.

All VPS can be administered remotely, from anywhere in the world, eliminating the associated costs & lost productivity of site visits.

With triple replication of all data & multiple failover paths, our cloud infrastructure provides a more reliable platform than dedicated or on-premise solutions & at a fraction of the cost!
