ownCloud

ownCloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. ownCloud is functionally very similar to the widely used Dropbox, with the primary functional difference being that ownCloud can be installed on a private server, hence removing the limits on storage space (except for disk capacity or account quota) or the number of connected clients.
