LibreOffice Online Coming OwnCloud Enterprise Users

Owncloud is a famed software among those in the free and open-source community as it is a client-server software that allows users to create file hosting services as well as give them the ability to use them. The software shares many of its similarities with Dropbox and their only difference is the former is free and open-source while the latter is not.

Owncloud Inc, the company that backed the Owncloud software has recently announced a partnership Collabora – who’s mission is to accelerate the adoption of open source technologies, methodologies and philosophy– in the hopes of bringing LibreOffice online to Owncloud users as a means to extend the OwnCloud Enterprise ecosystem.

The partnership’s first outcome was to release LibreOffice online for OwnCloud users in the last month of 2015 and now it would seem they are extending the same support to the OwnCloud enterprise platform.

“We are thrilled to release the first ever LibreOffice Online solution in partnership with ownCloud,fulfil” said Michael Meeks, General Manager at Collabora Productivity. “ownCloud brings Innovative Collaboration to Enterprises and it is a privilege to work alongside their established support and maintenance fulfil their customer’s needs.”

Creating LibreOffice Online for ownCloud Enterprise was made possible due to Collabora’s CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition) tool which is created by the company to offer users with stable virtual machines that contain both LibreOffice Online and OwnCloud server projects.


The software allows users to be able to create and edit various office documents using OwnCloud’s web-based user interface.
This is a great choice for both small and big size business enterprises as it offers to boost productivity as well as allows collaborations of users across its entire ecosystem.

The new solution is available right now from ownCloud, offered under the name of “Collabora Online for ownCloud Enterprise” for the price of EUR 1,000 or USD 1,200 for 50 users per year.
