Collaboration Cloud

The university computing centre offers a „Cloudstorage“ service that uses the software „Nextcloud“.

The Cloudstorage environment is basically a cloud-based storage service to store data centrally. For this purpose, the Jade University has access to storage systems from the project „Niedersachsen Storage-Cloud“. One system is used at the study location Oldenburg, while a copy of these data is put on the system in Wilhelmshaven. The data are being encrypted for transfer and storage, which ensures a high level of security.

The following functions are currently available:

  • Central, personal data storage and the possibility to synchronise with your end device with aid of the Nextcloud Client Software. Staff of the Jade University have 50GB storage each, students get to use 10GB each.
  • Restoring of altered or deleted files.
  • Direct view at many multimedia formats and standard data formats in the webbrowser.
  • Availability of group folders to work in teams.
  • Availability of different apps to enhance the functionality.
  • Possibility to encrypt files.

With a webbrowser, members of the university can access the Collaboration Cloud under

The previous service “ownCloud” is planned to be taken out of service by the 30.06.2019. Further information can be found under the menu item Decommissioning of the ownCloud.
