The first consumer device to run snaps: Nextcloud box

The Nextcloud box is a private cloud and IoT solution for home users, giving consumers a way to take back control over their personal data. It’s an app-enabled home gateway and the first Ubuntu-Core-enabled consumer device.

Snaps and Ubuntu Core are key enablers of the “out-of-the-box” solution, sustainable auto-update and security functionality. Ubuntu Core’s ease-of-use and flexibility supported a rapid time to market in just a few months from concept to a fully working product.

“As a completely open source product we encourage anyone to take the idea, the OS, the hardware, the software and let your creativity run wild to adapt and create new, more advanced or refined solutions for new markets and use cases.”

Frank Karlitschek, Founder and Managing Director at Nextcloud
