Why it matters

Individuals and families own ever-larger amounts of important data. Examples are as varied as family photos, electronic medical lab test reports, tax-related electronic records and more. This data is generally considered personal and private, but often needs to be shared among household members. It also needs to be preserved for the long term.

UBOSbox Nextcloud home servers enable consumers to store this valuable data at home, on hardware they control, without needing to share it with a third-party provider whose privacy policies may be suspect, and who also may not be in business for as long as the data needs to be preserved.

Who

Indie Computing Corp., a Silicon Valley-based, self-funded company that develops technology products that empower everybody to own their own data and to reclaim sovereignty over their life on-line.

Products also include UBOS, a Linux distribution focused on home servers, and UBOS Live, a systems management service for user-owned servers.
