In today’s “Nice to know” article we would like to introduce another special service that you can use as a member of the RWTH Aachen University: the cloud service sciebo.

Sciebo – the campus cloud

Sciebo is a free cloud storage service for research, study and teaching. The service enables the automatic synchronization of data on different end devices. You can not only share your data with other users, but also work together on documents. Each user has 30 GB of free storage space available. For research projects, project boxes of up to 2 TB are provided. Employees can even increase the quota of 30 GB to 500 GB on their own.

Welcome to sciebo

Sciebo is operated by the University of Münster. The data is stored and processed exclusively in NRW. The data is not stored on the storage facilities of commercial services abroad, but remains in NRW. The cloud service is thus subject to the German data protection law – one of the strictest in the world.
