Collabora Productivity, the driving force behind putting LibreOffice in the Cloud, and ownCloud, the company behind the world’s most popular Open Source enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) software, have released a combined commercial solution including Collabora Online, which brings the first-ever production ready LibreOffice Online functionality to the public.
Collabora Online is a key building block for ownCloud, providing Enterprise users with the much requested Open Source cloud document suite that supports all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats, increasing productivity while staying in full control of sensitive corporate data.
Teams are able to collaborate using “shared editing” where any one user can edit and all other users can see changes in real-time. For existing ownCloud users this resolves potential version conflicts. While working independently on the same document, this collaboration now happens online, inside the ownCloud web frontend.
“We are thrilled to release the first ever LibreOffice Online solution in partnership with ownCloud” said Michael Meeks, GM, Collabora Productivity. “ownCloud brings Innovative Collaboration to Enterprises and it is a privilege to work alongside their established support and maintenance teams to fulfill their customer’s needs”
“Collabora has worked incredibly hard to bring the first Open Source Online Editing Suite to the Cloud and we are delighted to be the first ones to bring it to the market” said Holger Dyroff, MD, ownCloud. “This integration between two leading projects is going to have a great impact on our customers, and we are looking forward to the future with confidence.”
This solution is now available from ownCloud under the name “Collabora Online for ownCloud Enterprise”. Pricing starts at 1,000 EUR or US $1,200 for 50 users per year in addition to an ownCloud Enterprise or ownCloud Standard Subscription.
