Real time co-authoring in Nextcloud

October 02, 2020

Whether you are running or building your own cloud applications, there are very few suitable choices that provide a secure, cloud-based experiences for the collaborative editing of Office files within your applications.

For example, if you wish to use Microsoft Office Online, you would need to allow your data to be transferred to an external service over the internet to call the necessary editing APIs. On the other hand, if you have your own license to use the Office Online Server, then it’s only good for in-house usage and you would also need to deal with the complexity and cost of deploying and maintaining the Microsoft server system.

That’s where our cloud application comes in. Hancom Office Online is designed for interoperability with Microsoft Office files from the ground up allowing you to run the applications on your premises without linking to external services. The applications provide real-time co-authoring as well as viewing, creating and editing of Microsoft Office files. Hancom Office Online also has the flexibility to run on Linux serverswith the full scalability to handle large scale services as proven by our hosted service for Amazon WorkDocs. For lightweight usage, you could easily run the server deployed from a single Docker image for your team.
