The computing centre offers a cloud-based storage with aid of the “ownCloud” software.
ownCloud is a cloud service for the central strorage of data. Storage systems from the project “Niedersachsen Storage-Cloud” are made available for the Jade University. More specifically, there is a system used for ownCloud in Oldenburg and a copy of all data is carried out onto the system in Wilhelmshaven. Additionally, the data are encrypted when transmitted and stored. This way, a high level of security is ensured. Staff can resort to 50 GB storage space, students get to use up to 10GB. To log into ownCloud, please use your username (e.g. ma1000) and the according password.
You can use ownCloud in different ways:
