ownCloud @ Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2014

Last weekend Daniel, Arthur, Morris and me were in Chemnitz where the Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2014 took place. We drove a booth during the two days, the CLT host around 60 boothes of companies and FOSS projects. I like to go to the CLT because it is perfectly organized with great enthusiasm of everybody involved from the organisation team. Food, schedules, the venue, everything is perfect.

Even on saturday morning, short after opening of the event, somebody from the orga team was showing up on the booth with chocolate for the volunteers, saying hello and asking if everything is in place for a successful weekend. A small detail, which shows how much effort is put into organization of the event.

As a result, visitors come to visit the event. It’s mostly a community centric event: Exhibitors are mostly representing FOSS projects such as openstreetmap.org, distributions like Fedora or openSUSE or companies from the free software market.

The majority of visitors are mostly interested in private use of the software. But, no rule without exception, we also had a remarkable number of people from companies, either executives or people working in the IT departments, who were interested in ownCloud.

Speaking about ownCloud, I want to say that it’s amazing to represent our project. People know it, people like it, people use it. In private, but also in professional space people work with ownCloud already or are planing to start with ownCloud. ownCloud already is the accepted solution for the problems that became so practical with the NSA scandal last year.

My talk with title A private Cloud with ownCloud on Saturday morning was very well received and went smooth. The room was too small, lots of people had to stand or sit on the stairs. It was a very positive atmosphere.

Something that changed compared to last year and the year before: Most discussions were around how ownCloud can be installed, integrated and used and not any more about which features are still missing or maybe also bugs.

So it were two very exhausting days, but big fun! Thanks to Daniel, Arthur and Morris for the work and fun we had on the booth, and thanks to the CLT team for CLT.

    When does OwnCloud support NFS, SFTP, SMB and SSH protocols to be used to access OwnCloud?

    I mean, I want to get NAS to backup everything in my LAN what I request it from clients (clients to backup to NAS). But then I want to get access to NAS over internet using SSH and SFTP or use SMB/NFS over VPN, so I can actually continue uploading my data to NAS controlled by OwnCloud without hashle. I want to start streaming videos, browse photos or listen music from my NAS at home without webbrowser on client or any special application Android devices. But currently I can’t.

      This sounds like you want to combine FreeNAS with ownCloud, which is possible. Or combine any other type of NAS with ownCloud. ownCloud itself will not add such protocols.

      Yes, there is already a feature request on github for that, and I hope we will find time to work on that.

        This is great. I’ll be looking forward to this new functionality. If you can put me on some list of warning about this update I will be very grateful.
