The stepping stone Ltd. relies on moden open source technologies. This is especially prevalent in the case of Nextcloud with its opzimized Functions and state-of-the-art security features. These reasons convinced us to choose Nextcloud.
Nextcloud is a so called "fork" of ownCloud. A fork is a project that has been split into a new version. Most of the time when such a fork happens, the developers have internal disputes over the future of the project. Some developers may want the project to go into another direction and then they create a fork.
In the case of ownCloud/Nextcloud, the original creator created a fork for this reason.
The Nextcloud developers have been implementing many Security features since the split, part of which ownCloud has also adopted.
You can access your data anytime and anywhere in the world by logging in to the webbrowser with your credentials. If you would like to synchronise your data with stoney storage locally you need a synchronisation software.
stoney storage uses Nextcloud as base software. Accordingly you need a Nextcloud compatible client so that the synchronisation of your data can proceed automatically.
The quota visible on stoney storage is an user quota and does not reflect the used space or available space on the file system at all. You can define these quotas in the user administration menu. Additionally to the real data the file system used space will also contain the previous and deleted versions of files. These can take up to 50% of the free space until they are cleaned automatically. This however can happen delayed and may need to be done manually in some cases.
