Some live in two different worlds and some manage to combine both to become even stronger — this counts for the new cooperation between Nextcloud and TrueNAS.

Nextcloud GmbH, the company behind the worlds’ most deployed on-premises content collaboration platform, and iXsystems inc., developers of the industry’s number one open storage platform, today announced an promising partnership with the goal to bring the full suite of Nextcloud Hub-features to TrueNAS.

Tens of thousands of TrueNAS-systems are already running Nextcloud and the availability of a supported, well-integrated offering may even give larger organizations more confidence to deploy.(Frank Karlitschek, CEO and Founder, Nextcloud)

Joining the forces

Following the Nextcloud-principle and unlike traditional cloud productivity platforms from Google and Microsoft, all data is maintained within the user’s private infrastructure and is not accessible to anyone else now as before. Additionally, both companies, Nextcloud and TrueNAS, still provide an extensive layer of security and compliance capabilities. Existing storage capacities can be scaled without any per-user restrictions or additional license fees while still owning your personal data on your own systems.

Enterprise storage needs continue to explode, only overtaken by the growth of compliance and privacy challenges. iXsystems and Nextcloud are uniquely capable of delivering a platform that tackles these two challenges at once.(Brett Davis, EVP, iXsystems)

Availability

Nextcloud Hub for TrueNAS is available immediately, based on the current Nextcloud Hub-version 22. Existing TrueNAS 12.0-users (CORE and Enterprise) can deploy the Nextcloud-plugin directly from the management backend. Nextcloud and iXsystems also offer enterprise support options for business users. A video with a walk-through of the installation process and a short look at Nextcloud in action is available on the official TrueNAS YouTube-channel!
