​G​​​ÉANT ownCloud and Co​​llabora

T​aking cloud collaboration to the next level



Multi-user simultaneous editing through Collabora

GÉANT, ownCloud and Collabora are now offering a joint solution which includes Collabora Online to the ownCloud service suite. This brings the first-ever production ready LibreOffice Online functionality to the R&E community within one set of services.

Via the GÉANT Framework Agreement, ownCloud Enterprise users can now have access to a much requested open source cloud document suite that supports all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats, increasing productivity while staying in full control of sensitive corporate data.

Choosing the option Collabora Online for ownCloud Enterprise, users will be able to access their office documents within the ownCloud web front, author new content, share their work and collaboratively work on the same document with others, all while others can see changes in real time and take over editing. No longer are users plagued with version conflicts that could occur while working independently on documents.

Collabora Online provides educational and research institutions with a scalable, commercially supported version with Long Term Support, signed security updates and a Service Level Agreement maintained by ownCloud GmbH.
