The Computer Officers offer a range of services that all broadly fall under the heading of "Data storage", each of which has different intended uses.
Chembox is a file-syncing service, and provides similar functionality to systems such as Dropbox, Onedrive etc, whilst ensuring that your data is hosted by the Department of Chemistry rather than a 3rd-party provider
We offer a disk-hosting service: you provide a hard disk, and we will host it in a server that we manage and make the space accessible over the network to you. Please see the disk hosting page for further details on this service.
Dropbox Business is a secure, cloud-based file sharing and storage service providing access to your files from your computer, your mobile devices and the web. You can share your files securely with others, whether or not they use Dropbox. Cambridge University students and staff can buy a heavily-discounted Dropbox Business subscription through the University using their @cam domain email address. Existing paying Dropbox users can receive a pro-rated refund from Dropbox.
We provide a resilient, highly-available managed fileserver service, which includes off-site backup. We are able to offer a small (100GB) amount of space to research groups free of charge, whilst larger amounts of space must be paid for by the terabyte.
