German Federal administration relies on Nextcloud to save and exchange documents in the cloud
In order to save and exchange documents, the German federal administration will use Nextcloud in the future. The open-source cloud should run on its own server infrastructure, project staff do the support.
Around 300,000 users are members of the federal administration, which has been looking for a file-sharing and sync solution in a call for tenders via its IT service provider ITZ Bund (Federal Information Technology Center). It is all about the fact that the employees quickly and easily exchange documents and keep, but also work together on these.
The contract was awarded Nextcloud. The ITZ Bund has been running the cloud solution since October 2016 with about 5,000 users in the test.
