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.
