What can OpenAppStack do?

Why should I use OpenAppStack?

There are several reasons why you should use OpenAppStack.

Unlike other online services, OpenAppStack does not

  • Show you ads

    Because OpenAppStack is built on open source applications and you pay for the infrastructure it runs on, there is no need to make money from advertisement.

  • Lock you in

    You control your data. You can take it elsewhere if you want.

  • Control your data

    With OpenAppStack, you choose the server. You can have a server at home, in an office, in a data centre, or with a cloud provider. This means that you control the data on the server and who has access to it.

  • Make money from your data

    We don’t use your data to show ads. We don’t analyze your data and sell the analysis to the highest bidder, etc.

  • Share resources with others

    Your OpenAppStack is not a spot on a shared OpenAppStack server, but only yours.

OpenAppStack is

  • Self-hosted

    You get complete control over your data by hosting OpenAppStack on your own infrastructure.

  • Auto updating

    You won’t have to worry about updating the applications every week, OpenAppStack applies most updates automatically.

  • Open source

    OpenAppStack is built on open source software.

    OpenAppStack is not the only open source private cloud platform, check out our comparison with similar platforms here.

What do I need to do to use OpenAppStack?

Most applications included in OpenAppStack allow you to import data from other popular cloud applications. For example, you can import your Slack history to Rocket.Chat or synchronize whole directories with Nextcloud using the desktop client.

To get started, you only need a server that meets the prerequisites stated in the documentation. Your server should only be used for OpenAppStack. Contact us if you need help setting it up.
