Hello everyone!

About Seafile

Seafile is an enterprise file sync and share solution with high reliability and performance developed by Seafile Ltd., a company based in Beijing, China. Designed as a reliable cloud file storage and collaboration platform, Seafile provides a similar feature set like well-known cloud storage providers, while it allows users to host the server on their own hardware.

The core feature of Seafile is file sync and share. It offers client apps for most operating systems like Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOS and Android. It also provides a user-friendly web interface for accessing files via the web browser. The community edition of the Seafile server is 100% open source.

Currently, Seafile counts over 1 million users worldwide. It is used in large organizations and commercial companies, Kaspersky Lab and the University of Mainz are among them.

A complete alternative to Office 365

ONLYOFFICE integration is available starting from version 6.1.0 of Seafile Server, including Seafile Community Edition. With ONLYOFFICE Document Server, users are able to view, edit and co-author their documents, spreadsheets, and presentations stored on the Seafile server.

Jonathan Xu, Co-founder & CTO at Seafile:

We’re excited to team up with ONLYOFFICE to provide richer document collaboration ability to our customers. Combining the performant file syncing capability of Seafile and the intuitive online editing experience of ONLYOFFICE gives our users a complete alternative to Office 365 and Google Docs.

Detailed documentation on ONLYOFFICE-Seafile integration you can find on the official Seafile website.

Reaching out to the new markets

ONLYOFFICE constantly seeks ways to bring its collaborative technologies to companies and individuals worldwide that need professional office solutions adapted to their working needs and business environment. Our partners and resellers are a great help in this mission.

Galina Goduhina, Commercial Director at ONLYOFFICE:

We are happy to partner with Seafile team which from the security perspective, has created a unique sync&share platform with a full list of options to efficiently work with big data and sensitive information. This point is also the most important area for ONLYOFFICE. Seafile users can install ONLYOFFICE Document Editors on their own servers and therefore co-author files stored on Seafile with the most powerful online document editing engine.
