Sadly, the folks at Nextcloud don’t understand that owning your data and owning your infrastructure are not the same thing. I love the software and have done for a long time. But they consistently contend (needlessly) that you don’t own your data unless you own the hardware storing it. That’s patently absurd and silly. mastodon.xyz/@nextcloud/101329

Totally agree... But that said, it feels nice to have my on my own hardware, in my own laundry room. And it feels even better every time I need another terabyte, to buy it cheap and add it to my own raid. :)

@ohthehugemanatee Funny but I just did the opposite. After Spectre and Meltdown my on-prem hardware was dog slow. Everything is just painful. So I migrated nextcloud to EC2. I still have a Synology on-prem for mass storage that I care about. But I use nextcloud from outside the house as much as inside. So EC2 was a better choice for my use cases.
