I use OwnCloud on my home server (mostly for syncing PDFs for lectures and other files).
It's open source, has native clients for Windoozle, Linux and CrapOSX.
For Android and jOS exists an unexpensive app which works mostly great but sometimes hangs on Android, if the folder has lots of files in it.
OwnCoud requires PHP on Apache on Linux and that you have root access to the server.
For a self-hosted solution owncloud is good.
To host on server, you all you need to do is add Samba you don't need a Linux/Windows hybrid.
Samba share allows linux to connect to windows volumes.
Or, just use google drive or Dropbox for easy solution, I just drop files into my local Dropbox folder and it automagically uploads to cloud and syncs my Dropbox folder across all my devices.
Just to propose another interesting option, consider Syncthing. It's basically an open source BitTorrent Sync.
I recommend nextcloud. Its a fork of owncloud - in my eyes it's better.
bahua55536dI use owncloud and like it very much, but since you asked for something that doesn't use a web interface, I recommend Amazon's S3 or Digitalocean's Cloud Object Storage. Both are accessible with powerful sync commands.
