QRIScloud’s Nextcloud service now in production

QRIScloud’s Nextcloud service, for efficient and easier research data management, is in production after completing a pilot phase begun earlier this year.

Nextcloud provides users with a one-stop shop to access and manipulate data wherever they are stored, using whatever device is preferred. Plus, each user gets an additional personal 150 GB of data storage to use as they wish.

Nextcloud storage is backed by QRIScloud’s replication processes, which protects users’ data against media failure.

Researchers using Nextcloud will be able to improve the overall management of important research data.

QCIF has upgraded its Nextcloud service to version 11.0.2 and added more resources to deliver performance improvements and a better user experience.

QCIF has simplified the steps researchers need to take to use the Nextcloud service; users register for a QRIScloud account and can then access the service directly using their AAF credentials (institutional login and password). Users no longer need to generate their QRIScloud Service Access Credential prior to using the service.
