OwnCloud Introduction - Open Source Cloud Storage Software

Looks like we've a month of cloud storage. With the launch of Google Drive service, the cloud storage market is getting crowded. People have been raising concerns over the privacy of their data. If you read through the terms and conditions of the most popular cloud services (Skydrive, Google Drive, Dropbox and so on), you will find that they're all in favor of the service providers. These service providers can use your data at their own will and you can't stop them from doing that.

OwnCloud seems to have come up with a solution - you own your cloud; on your own servers using the open source software built by the OwnCloud Inc. OwnCloud is an open source software that you can simply install on your own servers and offer the cloud service to your users. For example, we at CrazyEngineers can deploy the software and offer cloud storage service to all our CEans. You will be able to access your files across multiple devices through the software built by the company. Check out the official website: https://owncloud.org/ for further details.

Anyone want to give this a try?
but isnt it has the limitation that we can install only on own server , its like private cloud . we can install only on own server rather not on internet . not like drop box etc.
isnt it only for own server , not for servers of servers like internet .
