For switchers: PowerFolder is offering a special deal for ownCloud users

now switch from owncloud to powerfolder sync and share

The company dal33t GmbH, the firm behind PowerFolder, is offering a deal that makes the switch for ownCloud users that want to move to its German Sync & Share service even more attractive: just half price for the first year. To take advantage of this superb offer, anyone wishing to make the move simply has to produce evidence of an existing ownCloud user agreement.

Owing to the events of recent days, concerned ownCloud users can now take advantage of a special offer when they switch to the German Sync & Share provider PowerFolder: For the first year, they will only have to pay half the usual price.  Customers from the EDU sector can even convert an existing ownCloud license for the first year entirely for free. In both cases, a currently valid ownCloud user agreement simply has to be informally shown to PowerFolder by the end of June 2016. Anyone who registers by emailing contact (-at-)powerfolder.com now can secure the conditions if they take up the offer by the end of the year.

As one of the very first Sync & Share solutions and with nine years of proven performance in the market, PowerFolder has shown itself to be a leader in its field. Profitable from the outset – thanks to a sustainable and stable business model – it has grown steadily. Today, it serves over two million users, more than 900 – partially spectacular – corporate clients and more than 100 universities at home and abroad, all of whom know they can rely on PowerFolder. Christian Sprajc, CEO of the family-run dal33t GmbH, the company behind PowerFolder said, “We are very proud of having built up PowerFolder into a leading brand in the IT industry. With PowerFolder, you get a tried and tested European Sync & Share solution that is ‘Made in Germany’, and that you can firmly rely on in the future”. A fully functional, 30-day trial version is available at www.powerfolder.com.

ONLYOFFICE: PowerFolder with Document Editors in the Cloud

After a long test period PowerFolder – as the only German provider of cloud and Sync & Share solutions – offers now an integrated web-based document editor. For this purpose, the company from Meerbusch has integrated parts of the proven ONLYOFFICE.

Meerbusch, April 20, 2016 – After a year of intense beta testing PowerFolder has completed the integration of the Document Server of ONLYOFFICE into its proven Sync & Share solution. From now on users can edit their documents, spreadsheets and presentations stored in the PowerFolder cloud, without having to leave the PowerFolder interface and start an external office software. Thanks to this feature – that PowerFolder offers as the  only German Sync&Share solution – the work with PowerFolder has become more comfortable.  After a thorough evaluation, PowerFolder chose ONLYOFFICE because of its great compatibility with existing Office products.

PowerFolder more comfortable with ONLYOFFICE

With PowerFolder, the last version of user documents is automatically saved in the cloud and is available from anywhere, anytime; not only for the users themselves, but also for all authorized colleagues, employees or students that have access to the relevant directory. Due to the recently integrated ONLYOFFICE Document Server it is now possible to edit documents directly in the cloud. Simply click the relevant document, spreadsheet or presentation and ONLYOFFICE starts within PowerFolder; a separate installation on the user device is not required. Very useful: multiple users can edit a document online simultaneously from different locations, each author’s changes are always shown in a different color. The integrated comment and chat features make cooperation easier. PowerFolder including on-premise solution offers the support for the latest version of ONLYOFFICE Document Server with all its advantages since version 10.5.


ONLYOFFICE (formerly Teamlab Office) is a multifeatured online office suite for business collaboration, document and project management. It includes an online office application for working within a browser allowing to edit and comment text documents, spreadsheets and presentations in real time. All major file formats are supported, including Microsoft Office formats. The online office application is integrated with CRM system, a project management toolset, and an email server.  ONLYOFFICE started out in 2009 and has been translated into 21 languages.

DNDi: PowerFolder increases investment in E-Health

PowerFolder deepens its – since 2014 existing – cooperation with the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) and donated additional PowerFolder licenses to the non-profit-organization, which fights neglected diseases. Pascal Carpentier, Head of Information Systems and Technology of DNDi: „We are very satisfied with PowerFolder and are excited to plan new applications.“

Meerbusch/Geneva, 06.04.2016 – The German company dal33t GmbH from Meerbusch, which is specialized in Sync & Share Solutions, donated an additional set of PowerFolder Enterprise licenses to the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi). Thus, the since 2014 existing cooperation of the cloud specialist with the non-profit organization from the healthcare sector will be further expanded. The additional licenses are rapidly needed by DNDi, especially for new studies in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), to add more clinical sites and staff.

The fight against neglected diseases needs a reliable Sync & Share Solution

DNDi develops safe, effective, and – most importantly – affordable drugs for neglected diseases. These include sleeping sickness, Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, paediatric HIV, filaria diseases, mycetoma, and hepatitis C. A billion people worldwide – including 500 million children – are suffering from these diseases, that are responsible for 90 percent of the global burden of disease although the pharmaceutical market invests worldwide just more than ten percent of its research effort in this field.
DNDi operates globally through a number of private and public partnerships in more than 40 countries – including 50 public research centres and 20 pharmaceutical and biotech companies. DNDi supports health staff and doctors at several clinical research facilities with treatments and diagnostic tools.
Pascal Carpentier, DNDi Head of Information Systems and Technologies: „We use PowerFolder to collect microscope videos and photos taken in our hospitals in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to find possible indications of an infection with the sleeping sickness“. It often involves large amounts of data, which must be sent as soon as possible, in a safe and especially reliable way. For Pascal Carpentier, PowerFolder is the best solution. „Our network is based on satellite links. PowerFolder – with its compression and block-transfer – allows us an extremely safe and cost-effective data transmission. Due to the high sensitivity of the patient data only a private cloud solution is possible. We are very pleased with PowerFolder. In future we will also plan to use it in Africa and Latin America.“


About DNDi

The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) was established in Geneva in 2003 by renowned research and health organizations such as Doctors Without Borders (MSF) or the Institut Pasteur. The organization is active in research and development of affordable drugs for neglected diseases through partnerships with the public and private sectors (universities, research institutes, pharmaceutical companies, etc). DNDi aims to improve the quality of life and health of people suffering from these diseases – by an alternative model for drug development and by ensuring equal access to new and adapted therapies to patients in need. DNDi is funded by governments, private foundations, and individual donors.
