STÖBER is a midsized company, which is subject to German laws. There are strict laws which forbid a company to store privacy data (like names and birthdays of customers) on a storage system owned by a third party. At least, there has to be a guarantee to store the data on servers inside the European Union.

Many employees had installed Dropbox for a fast and easy way to share data, especially with employees at other subsidiaries. But, Dropbox can’t guarantee that. The company, therefore, needed to find an on-premises alternative for Dropbox. (Compare Dropbox vs FileCloud and learn why FileCloud is the leader among self-hosted alternatives to Dropbox).

Key Requirements:

  • Simple and fast solution which doesn’t need a lot of training.
  • Storing the data on premises or at least to get a guarantee that the data in stored in the EU.
