Caratteristiche ed accessibilità


NextStorage services are synchronization and file sharing services based on the Nextcloud, platform, an open source system designed to be easy to use and highly secure.

LThe Nextcloud platform implements file sharing in self-hostedmode, in other words it provides a security solution that gives data owners complete control over data location and access policies, , with a hybrid or private cloud solution. As a result, NextStorage services enable GDPR compliance, while also providing encryption and user management.

Accessibility to the platform and data is guaranteed by the availability of client software for both mobile devices (Android, iOS) and desktop. These clients allow users to synchronize and share files securely through https connections. Clients for mobile devices have automatic upload of photos and videos captured by users and can synchronize selected files and folders. Clients can manage multiple accounts, show all current activity on the server and notify you of events such as the availability of new shares.
