A file sharing and cloud storage solution for the research and education sector

CloudStor File Sender + Storage

Collaborating and sharing files just got so much easier for AARNet customers. We've merged our two popular web services CloudStor (FileSender) and Cloudstor+ (cloud storage) into one easy-to-use solution. 



Features & benefits

  • CloudStor file storage, CloudStor FileSender and the AARNet Mirror are all accessible from the new CloudStor web interface.
  • Fast access using Single Sign-On, such as Australian Access Federation (AAF) credentials
  • Fast and easy large file transfer
  • Storage located in Australia and directly connected to the AARNet backbone at 40Gbps, for rapid and convenient access, and avoiding any sovereignty issues.
  • Data is replicated a minimum of three times at geographically distributed storage nodes for high reliability and availability. 
  • Individual researchers at AARNet-connected institutions receive up to 100GB of storage free of charge and low-cost additional storage is available on request.
  • AARNet can set up groups with group storage quotas for research collaborations. Research groups may apply for a group quota by emailing with contact details and approximate size of storage required.
  • If you want to view, sync and share files stored in CloudStor across all your devices, CloudStor works with ownCloud's sync clients.  To access these you can run the wizard when you first set up CloudStor, or access them from ownCloud.
  • Cloudstor uses EOS, the scalable back-end storage developed at CERN.
