Storage Services

File Service

Your Requirement

You need local storage for you and your work group. If your storage is running short or you want to use your data on several computers then you might prefer to store your files on centrally provided storage – accessible at any time and with flexible and scalable capacity.

Our Offer

We operate enterprise file servers providing scalable mass storage in different performance classes which you can use. Your available storage capacity (disk quota) can be adapted and grow with your scientific requirements.

Preconditions For Use

The service is available to all institutes of the University of Göttingen. You need a client (supporting e.g. NFS or cifs) for accessing the file servers.

How To Use

Your Advantages

  • You do not need any infrastructure of your own, a network connection is sufficient.
  • Under different operating systems you can use the files just like local ones.
  • The data is saved to backup tapes periodically.
  • The volume used can be adapted according to your requirements.
