Researchers' file sharing service

As part of delivering the University IT strategy on research collaboration IT Services are pleased to announce a new centrally supported private cloud storage solution- OwnCloud.

OwnCloud provides secure on-campus storage for staff research data which can be securely shared with researcher collaborators at other institutions using login credentials they use at their own institutions. (Known as UK access federated sign-in.)

On-campus file storage is maintained on the University of Glasgow infrastructure and is fully backed up.

It is suitable for research data where the funding body has stipulated that data must be housed within the University, or where the nature of the data requires on-campus storage.
Research Group information can be used to create collaborative groupings to simplify document management and sharing.
