Onlyoffice and Owncloud come together to provide a definitive solution

About OnlyOffice and Owncloud

Recientemente Through a special statement on the Onlyoffice blog, they announced an announcement in the that now the ownCloud and ONLYOFFICE development teams will start working together.

Development teams reached an agreement and have joined forces so that they can integrate the two tools and thus offer a more complete office solution.

About OnlyOffice and Owncloud

For those who are still unaware of any of these office suites, I can comment on the following.

OnlyOffice is an alternative to LibreOffice, Office 365 and Google Docs, Onlyoffice offers different types of service oriented to all needs.

Among the versions that Onlyoffice has, we find the desktop edition which is a version that has its own word processor, spreadsheets and presentations, a fairly reduced version for more than enough for elementary level students.

And the Enterprise edition version with which it has additional features, one of them is that we can edit documents online.

ownCloud is a free software application of the type File Hosting Service, allowing online storage and online applications

Onlyoffice and Owncloud partner

With the recent announcement of the association of developers from both sides also some points were made about this association, and 4 are important to highlight:

1 - With the new tools installed by Univention which is a Debian derived server system with a focus on integrated management for central government and multi-platform servers, services, clients, desktops and users, as well as virtualized computers operated on UCS.), the installation of ONLYOFFICE Document Server with facilitated synchronization with ownCloud.

2 - Another novelty was the release of the ownCloud connector 2.0.3, thus allowing users to open files in ODT, ODS and ODP formats for standard edition.

3 - With the new version of ONLYOFFICE it is intended that the user has the ability to choose in which cloud storage service to save the documents.

At the moment the solutions are the cloud platforms of ONLYOFFICE or ownCloud (other options will be available shortly). By the hour you can save your documents in the ONLYOFFICE cloud.

4 - The fourth and last point that caught our attention was the announcement that it will soon be possible to save directly to the ownCloud cloud.

In the current method, you have to download the file to your computer, make the change to it and then upload it to the cloud.


But in the next version of ONLYOFFICE (v.10.0) this process will be simplified, this "delay" is due to the adaptation of the interfaces, both OnlyOffice and ownCloud.

These are the main points that we highlight this association.


Hassle-free and secure collaboration on documents

Through this association, industries that need to handle sensitive data gain access to the most innovative online office applications that allow them to work together in real time from the complex and secure OwnCloud environment.

Providing perfect compatibility with Microsoft Office formats, ONLYOFFICE allows ownCloud users to work with all common file formats (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, TXT, ODT, ODS, ODP, DOC, XLS, PPT, PPS, EPUB, RTF, HTML, HTM, PDF).

With this you can make use of the vast majority of formatting options: add links, tables and graphs, insert diagrams, automatic forms, mathematical formulas, edit headers and footers, create style sheets, make design changes in everything the document with two mouse clicks, and much more

We can see an evolution in the ONLYOFFICE office suite platform with the addition of the ownCloud service and thus bringing the possibility of saving your files created in the suite in a cloud.

Being able to be both private (created by you) and in the ONLYOFFICE clouds and that is very good because if you have an unforeseen event that you need to send your PC for maintenance, you will be able to access the files and start working as it happens with Google Docs and OneDrive. from Microsoft
