ownCloud has been an excitingly successful service in the EFSS space since its breakthrough in 2013. Since customers deploy the solution in vastly different environments as public, private or hybrid cloud and utilizing different infrastructure components and identity providers, operational experience showed challenges with the previous design decisions.

This talk will reflect on the past experiences of the 100s of different large scale setups, challenges presented to operators and ownCloud project and company, and touch on specific topics related to the challenges in NREN/Research deployments.

Considering this active relection and synthesis of key learnings, the focus will shift towards an outlook on which lessons where learned and how that influences the timelines and plans in the years ahead. An important aspect will be reflection on actions taken to overcome technical debt and results obtained by the changes implemented since the new direction under the new CTO was undertaken and how this will proceed into the future.
