Stay in control of your data

Gandi has been an independent actor on the internet for over 20 years, and we are always looking for new ways to help our customers be as independent as possible. This is why we are now offering you the ability to have easy access to your own shared storage space. Nextcloud is currently recognized as an open-source alternative to platforms such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud.

Nextcloud lets you host your own cloud based file sharing and storage platform, whether you are an individual who just wants to store the photos from your smartphone, or a group that is looking for a way to share files.

With Nextcloud Simple Hosting, we want to facilitate access to this solution by providing you with a Simple Hosting instance that comes with Nextcloud already installed and ready to go. You are then free to manage it according to you needs.
