Podcast: Nextcloud founder Frank Karlitschek on breaking away from the cloud

Frank founded the ownCloud project in 2010 to put home users and enterprises back in control of their data. To bring file sync and share technology to the next level and better align to the needs of users and customers he founded Nextcloud in 2016. We caught up at FOSDEM in Brussels earlier this year to talk open source.

Among the topics we covered were:

  • Nextcloud
  • How users/organizations have become more sophisticated about hybrid cloud and multi-cloud and have generally rejected making a binary choice
  • Reasons why some of his customers have chosen to self-host storage and collaboration
  • Why we should talk more about the freedoms that come from choosing open source
