ownCloud is a personal productivity powerhouse. It gives you universal access to all your files, contacts, calendars and bookmarks across all of your devices. Unlike many of the shared repository services out there, with ownCloud, you have your own, private repo. However, just like the public repo companies, with ownCloud you can share your files with friends and co-workers. If you need it, ownCloud even integrates with other storage providers. Best of all, ownCloud is open source and free!

ownCloud is an excellent way to set up a private (or corporate!) contacts, calendar, and Dropbox-like solution.
I use it as a service to sync contacts, calendars, and files across my computers and devices. Sort of like personal iCloud and Dropbox replacements. The web interface, desktop, and iOS apps are great!
This is the best way to being able to run your own cloud storage. With owncloud you never have to worry if you saved the file on a USB to bring it to another computer, instead its already there since owncloud is working in the background.
OwnCloud is an open source alternative to Box and DropBox. It is not as easy to use or full-featured (though Bitnami helps with the installation part!) but has the critical feature that can be implemented entirely on-premise, addressing the concerns about privacy and data ownership from larger organizations.
I've had some problems to perform the installation manually. When I found the bitnami stack to woncloud the time for deply a instance in my Amazon AWS account and our VMWARE servers reduced by 85%. we use this solution for file synchronization solutions across organizational units of our company.
This is very well packaged for Mac distribution. I have tried and works fine, given that there is official issue reported with unicode with owncloud 7. However, I could not install additional applications with bitnami owncloud. How this will be added soon.
