I recently came across filecloud community edition platform which seems interesting and offers a lot in 10 dollars. I am looking for such a solution, but i don’t know how it fares against the likes of nextcloud and owncloud. Can someone please help in this regard?
You can take a look at their website.
There is a comparison for both of your questions.
For ownCloud a list of providers can be found at https://owncloud.org/hosting-partners/
Since I don’t want to prefer any hoster, I wouldn’t tell names, but there are plans starting from € 1,50/month.
I don’t know much about filecloud, but
- it seems to be closed source software
- there is no free variant at all (regarding self-hosting)
- there is not much general information on the web (e.g. no Wikipedia article and its not listed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_synchronization_software)
Edit: fixed link
I don’t believe you can rely on the information provided with those links.
In the first link, for instance, there is a comparison table between filecloud and ownCloud, where they state that ownCloud cannot be run in docker, the tell Supported Local Storage is n/a for ownCloud which both is definitively wrong.
There are several more wrong points that I’ll not discuss in detail, but the provided information is definitively wrong, period.
