Hi, a few days ago we made a new release of the Cloudy community cloud
software. The announcement with details is here:
Under the hood there is improved support for Docker containers (also
docker compose) and also support/integration of IPFS (a P2P web/file
service with off-line access). Many new applications can be installed
thanks to the docker support, and several are prepared to run just from
the click of a button (like Etherpad for group editing, Home Assistant
for smart homes, next/own-Cloud for a bunch of web apps for file sharing
and communications, instant messaging like Rocket Chat or Riot,
Mosquitto for IoT, among others.

In addition, we have completed an extended research paper that describes
the organizational and governance models of a Community Cloud as
Commons, the lessons learned from the last 2 years of a pilot with
earlier versions of the Cloudy software in the guifi.net
about 60 devices deployed, and a socio-economic analysis of the
competitiveness of community clouds in comparison with commercial cloud
providers. The report is here:
Thanks to Roger Pueyo, Roger Baig, Agustí, Felix, Shams, Mennan and
others who participated in the pilot, the design of the governance
model, the development.
Kind regards, Leandro.
