I've been looking at owncloud for potentially connecting my remote users with their documents and I started wondering, would this be a good solution for ALL my users? Currently, like many companies, our internal users have their my documents redirected to a server share. But my thought was, if we used owncloud they could work on a local copy of their documents with the changes syncing to the server. So the data is safe, but its also available locally in case of network disruption (especially important for users in small remote offices with no local file server). Then users who may need access to files outside of the office could have that as well.
Has anyone else done anything like this, or is it just mostly used to provide external file access? I am only brainstorming at this point but wanted to see if anyone else had done anything like this and get opinions on how it worked. If its worth considering or just use owncloud for external access only.
