Nextcloud, Canonical and WDLabs, teamed up to launch the Nextcloud Box last week.
Consisting of a 1 TB hard drive and a case, alongside either a Raspberry Pi 2,3 or the oDroid C2. The box runs Snappy Ubuntu core as its operating system and Nextcloud as its file sync software.
Frank Karlitschek, Nextcloud’s founder, said, “The Snappy technology from Canonical enables users to add more functionality, turning this into a true IoT hub in their home. Ubuntu Core enables the device to act as an extensible IoT gateway at home. You can add functionality to it and control other devices and connect to them while keeping the user secure through automatic, unattended updates.”
