ownCloud on OpenShift
ownCloud is a flexible, open source file sync and share solution. Whether using a mobile device, a workstation, or a web client, ownCloud provides the ability to put the right files at their employees’ fingertips on any device in one simple-to-use, secure, private and controlled solution.
Think of ownCloud as a way to roll your own Google Drive or Dropbox on-premise solution.
