Store Your Data in Your Own Private NextCloud Box, not in the Cloud

Want to have all your data available to you at all timers? Even on your cell phone or tablet computer? But you are not comfortable storing it in someone else’s cloud-based data storage service?

The NextCloud Box may be what you need.

The NextCloud Box is a project between Western Digital Labs, Ubuntu/Canonical and NextCloud GmbH. It gives you the possibility to store your data (files, documents, photos, calendars, notes, newsfeed, contacts, music files, video files and everything the can be stored in a file) in your own NextCloud Box. The Box may be installed in your home or office but (optionally) be available to you anyplace you travel.

Best of all, the information may be (optionally) encrypted so that no hacker or government spy can read the data. There is no need anymore to upload your data to proprietary cloud services like Dropbox, Google Cloud, Microsoft Cloud, Apple Cloud, Amazon Cloud, and many other! It will be even possible in the next release to make encrypted phone calls via your NextCloud Box.

The NextCloud Box costs $79.99 US plus a Raspberry Pi computer that can be purchased in many places at very low prices. Full details may be found at:
