        We use Nextcloud for company-file-management, personal work-documents and for collaborative work (through collabora), organize our #TODOs, that are not covered by the Bugtracker. Existing solutions either were very expensive ( Google Drive ), missed a lot of features ( Trello ) or were pretty much overloaded with features ( Wekan within Sandstorm ).

        That made Nextcloud ud our natural fit for our company management and we're convinced of its integrations and flexibility.

        I use box as an broker between my phone's data storage and my home networks backup storage. Box allowed me to automated backup of photos and videos to their cloud storage and in turn, schedule syncs of this data from Box to local network storage. This is a decent solution for me as it essentially offers on-premises backup in case I lose my phone and it also offers off-site back up inherently in case of local data loss, fire, etc.
