Linux News Today: LibreOffice Online Is Now Ready for ownCloud Enterprise, Thanks to Collabora
Today, June 23, 2016, ownCloud, Inc. and Collabora have just announced that their partnership aimed at bringing LibreOffice Online to ownCloud users has been extended to the ownCloud Enterprise ecosystem.
ownCloud Server is a robust and self-hosting cloud storage solution. Collabora is a leading global consultancy organization that attempts to distribute the benefits of Open Source software to IMMs (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises) and big companies. They had already released LibreOffice Online to ownCloud users back in December 2015, and they are now extending that support to ownCloud Enterprise.
“We are thrilled to release the first ever LibreOffice Online solution in partnership with ownCloud” said Michael Meeks, General Manager at 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.”
LibreOffice Online will boost the productivity and collaboration of users
LibreOffice Online for ownCloud Enterprise is possible thanks to Collabora’s CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition) tool, which has been designed from the ground up to offer users a virtual machine containing both LibreOffice Online and ownCloud Server projects. With CODE, users will be able to edit various office documents through ownCloud’s web-based interface.
Bringing the powerful capabilities of the LibreOffice open-source office suite to the ownCloud Enterprise ecosystem will definitely boost the productivity and collaboration of users in big organizations. The new solution is available right now from ownCloud, offered under the name of “Collabora Online for ownCloud Enterprise” for the price of EUR 1,000 or USD 1,200 for 50 users per year.
An online demo is also available online at https://www.collaboraoffice.com/owncloud.
