Storage (AFS)

DSI offers the IST community data storage service based on AFS (Andrew File System) technology.

AFS is a distributed file system that users can use simultaneously and that runs on different machines.

Access to AFS

It is possible to access IST AFS:

  • through a remote client according to the users preference and the operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, etc..);
  • by Sigma which also runs with a remote AFS client so that users can keep their data stored.

For users and groups by default is set a quota of 300 megabytes.
