The uptake of the AARNet CloudStor file sender and storage service is rapidly gaining momentum in the higher education community, accelerating past 26,600 users at the end of September 2016.
At Central Queensland University (CQU), for example, the service is working well for a wide range of users: students, staff and the long tail of researchers.
“The data is stored within Australia so there’s no sovereignty issues to worry about…and because CQ University is a partner of AARNet, if there are issues…we can directly contact the people and get access…the support and the availability to get access to the data are key features…” – Jason Bell, Senior Research Technologies Officer, CQU.
