ownCloud Partnership with WD to Bring Self-Hosted Cloud Storage in Users’ Homes

In their continuing fight to promote ownCloud everywhere as the safest ever cloud storage solution, the free software company is about to kick off a new project in collaboration with a special division of Western Digital (WD) focused on accelerating new solutions for home users.

The project consists of creating a self-hosted device powered by the ownCloud Server software, Western Digital 1TB hard disk drives, as well as a Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer. If the project proves to be successful, they will start selling the devices online starting early 2016.
