UniShare is a Content Collaboration Platform (CCP) for storing and sharing research data and for collaboration. The on-premise data is stored in the UT data centres. The service can easily be used by both internal and external users. UniShare can be used for processing large data volumes.
- Uses NextCloud technology. A frontend for our storage clusters to ensure data can be easily accessed and used via the Web, clients and mobile devices;
- Offers options for online joint editing. Supports all major file formats of documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
- Uses a storage cluster where the data between both UT data centres is synchronised asynchronously. Should one of these data centres go down, the other data centre has to be selected manually. The service will then not be available for some time. The storage cluster is ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 certified. The storage cluster uses many disks and offers high data storage capacity;
- Includes antivirus defences and ransomware protection. A vault is used for creating backups (max. data loss of 1 day and a retention period of 1 month);
- Large data areas is possible;
- Files can be recovered (recycle bin) and previous versions can be restored;
- Can be used offline;
- Suitable as a tool for collaborating with external parties (non-UT). People can be invited to collaborate using Surf Research Access Management (SRAM);
- eduVPN is not required.
