Research Drive is offered in two different varieties:
- Community instance
Here you share the Research Drive service with other users from other organisations
- Your own branded instance
Here you can have your own private Research Drive instance with the branding of your own organisation.
If you want access to a branded instance please contract your ICT department
There are two ways to get access to the Research Drive Community Instance:
- If you are already using other compute services at SURFsara (such as HPC cloud, Lisa or Cartesius), you can apply for the service via a pilot grant.
Please check that your institutes do not have a branded instance. For the pilot grants, you need to fill out a pilot applications request form.
We will assess your request and will let you know about the decision.
- You can also use the service independently for data storage and data sharing. In this case, you will need to make a separate contract and there will be fees involved.
For buying the service, you would need to contact us via our Service Desk or via mail.
