9.1 Implementation of the file sharing server

For file sharing and cooperative work on joint documents and deliverables a web-based project management platform has been implemented and is maintained by Fraunhofer IZM. The chosen system is the Fraunhofer own-Cloud. The Fraunhofer ownCloud is an easy-to-use Enterprise Sync & Share service hosted in Fraunhofer’s own data centre. The application is used for data exchange with internal employees and external partners as well as the synchronization of files between different devices (PC, iPad, iPhone). The Fraunhofer ownCloud is a secure alternative to services like Dropbox, Onedrive, etc
