The data manager platform

Access

The service is powered by the owncloud solution. It’s a piece of the CeSGO environment.

 

 

The aims are to manage scientific data shared on our core facility, but data on external servers too. (e.g. FTP, SFTP, Google drive, etc.)


The storage

All users have their private space for upload data. It’s an additional storage, in addition to the Home, Groups and Omaha-beach space.

This space is dedicated to a CeSGO usage.


The sharing

Users can share their files by generating a public link or by selecting an internal user.
