Nextcloud features

There are many interesting features that should not be underestimated:

  • the data is always in your network (it is easier to comply with the GDPR for privacy);
  • access is possible via web, with the Nextcloud client for Desktop for Windows, Linux or Mac, with both Android and IOS smartphones at the respective stores;
  • ability to encrypt data end-to-end;
  • the files can be stored on the server’s local disk but also on external services;
  • you can install many very useful plugins such as mail client service, contacts, calendar, document viewers and many others as from its app store;
  • user authentication can also be enabled via plugins with LDAP or IMAP servers or others in order to simplify management.

Service and data Backup

For security reasons and to ensure the continuity of your services, it is necessary to have a backup system that allows you to restore the service to a given moment of time identified as stable and not corrupted.

The backup can be implemented in different ways based on the customer’s choice such as:

  • backup to local disk (but in this way we will be at operator risk and viruses or hardware problems);
  • backup to corporate or remote NAS;
  • remote backup via software such as NetBackup or similar;
  • on a cloud space such as Amazon S3 or Glacier or others.

System monitoring

To understand in advance a problem that could occur or in any case to be able to quickly intervene on a malfunction it is necessary to have a monitoring system.

In the simplest cases, monitoring could only be internal to the server while in all other cases it would be useful to provide for both internal and external monitoring that includes notifications to the manager.

  • monitoring via cron of the operating system;
  • preparation of internal monitoring scripts;
  • monitoring by external service such as Icinga;
  • timely intervention to restore the problem detected.
