Running ownCloud Client
Following the steps below, you can run ownCloud client application. This application is meant to share and sync data between a pod (another running application) and ownCloud server, e.g., owncloud.cesnet.cz.
- Important prerequisite: application pod needs to use PVC in order to ownCloud client can sync data into the pod. If no PVC is used, no sync is possible.
- For most applications here it is possible to select persistent home which implies using PVC.
