"We live in an age where all of our digital life, all of our communications are now in the cloud, and most of it is hosted overseas. I have no desire to live in a world where five giants own all the files in the world. That's why I'm excited that we work together with SHADOW, as our two companies share values of excellence, openness, and European sovereignty.," said Frank Karlitschek, CEO of Nextcloud.
