I am in the process of de-googling and looking to find a secure, private but also convenient cloud/calendar/collaboration set-up for my family and medium sized company that I own.
I found NextCloud a few days ago and it looks like something that would be perfect for me.
I have a few issues that I was hoping some people from the community can assist me with.
Are the providers that host NextCloud safe and 100% secure/private?
I am leaning more toward storing my server at home or office so I have full control. However I am illiterate when it comes to linux and this level of computing and do not have the time to learn everything that I don’t understand when viewing the installation manual. Does anybody have a very simple step by step guide for installation for someone who understands nothing about Linux?
Due to #2 above, I am considering purchasing an already set up device containing NextCloud. Are these safe in regards to security and privacy? Are there any backdoors that are installed possibly during set-up? Are these easy to use for a layman like myself?
Thanks for your help in advance.
