    • Medium: {cpu: 2, memory: 16, diskSize: 500 }
    • Large: {cpu: 4, memory: 32, diskSize: 1000 }
    • Or choose a Custom plan

  • Enable the Certified flag to retrieve only certified nodes

  • Choose the location of the node

    • Country
    • Farm Name

Or you can select a specific node with manual selection.

  • Enable the Custom Domain flag to use a custom domain

Once you've set the deployment parameters, you can click on Deploy.


On the SMTP window, you can enable the optional SMTP Server flag if you want to have your ownCloud instance configured with an SMTP server.

List of Instances

When the deployment is ready, you will see a list of all of your deployed instances.

Admin Connection

Click on the button Visit under Actions to open the ownCloud login window. If you see bad gateway, you might simply need to wait a couple of minutes until the deployment completes.

To consult the deployment details, click on the button Details under Actions. On this page, you can access the ownCloud Admin Username and the ownCloud Admin Password. Use those credentials to log in as an administrator on your ownCloud deployment.

TFConnect App Connection

To connect to your ownCloud instance with the ThreeFold Connect app, you need to add permissions to your ThreeFold 3Bot ID by first connecting as an administrator.

  • Once you're connected as an admin, open the top-right menu and click on Users.
  • To create a new user, set your 3Bot ID as the username with its corresponding email address, and set Groups as admin. Then click Create.
  • You can now log out and connect to your ownCloud instance with the TF Connect app.
