Back in 2014 we noticed the need for an easy way to install ownCloud without having any technical skills. That’s why we made this .vmdk (Virtual Machine) and distributed it in the ownCloud community so that more people could get their data secured. With this appliance and the clients provided on ownClouds website you will get a fully functional cloud, hosted on your own server, or regular computer. Nowadays we recommend Nextcloud which is a fork from ownCloud and in our opinion better and more developed than ownCloud.
Control your own data
#DropDropbox and control your own data instead! To make this as simple as possible, we made a pre-configured machine that you just mount and boot up – ready to use directly after it’s downloaded, everything is pre-configured. We’ve got very positive feedback from several users around the world since we published it for the first time. We think it feels good to be able to help others with the same things we struggled with in the past – installation when we wanted to try ownCloud for the first time.
