I need some advice. I’m looking to make the switch away from Google Drive; for the time being I’ve chosen MEGA and I’ve been transferring data into that, since it’s open source and encrypted, has earned a very good reputation, and gives me 50 gb of free storage. However, for the past several years I’ve been using Google Docs as my main word processor, and Google Sheets as my main spreadsheet software. MEGA doesn’t provide these services.
There’s the option of converting to an open source offline office suite, like LibreOffice; I like the idea of my files being stored locally, but this negates the possibility of my files being editable across devices (which is a must for me in some cases), and also the possibility of real-time collaboration (also very important).
I’ve looked into online FOSS office software, but I haven’t found much.
I know there are also self-hosting options like NextCloud, which in some ways seems like the best alternative, but I haven’t really been able to get my head around the whole self-hosting thing, and at the moment I don’t really have the resources to set up my own server, with the necessary backups, etc. Exploring this option further is a goal I have for the future.
Do you have any recommendations for someone in my situation at present? Am I overlooking anything within the possibilities I’ve mentioned? Do you have any suggestions about something I haven’t mentioned at all?
Thanks very much for your time and your help.
