Hetzner offers a lot of storage space for very little money with its storage boxes.

In this guide I want to show you how to run oCIS (ownCloud Infinite Scale) on your own VM and store the data on a Hetzner Storage Box with S3.

OwnCloud decided to develop a completely new product a few months ago. In the meantime, there are already the first beta versions of the new OwnCloud with the name oCIS. oCIS stands for ownCloud Infinite Scale and should make clear that this cloud solution should be very scalable.

Newly, it is sufficient to start a single container with oCIS, which already contains all the necessary dependencies. So no database and no further containers are necessary to self-host oCIS.

In the following I would like to show you a setup how I run oCIS with Traefik as reverse proxy on my own server since the release of the first tech previews.
