ownCloud: Great New Service for File Sharing

ICT at the U of S is excited to offer a new service to students, faculty and staff. ownCloud – a file storage and sharing system superior to DropBox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, or Box.net, because your data is stored in Canada and on the University of Saskatchewan premises. This new service is now available to all faculty and staff as well as students enrolled in classes.

The features of ownCloud include:

  • Secure access to your files from any web browser and from your iOS or Android mobile device.
  • No sign-up required. If you have an NSID, you automatically have an ownCloud account.
  • With all students, faculty and staff having access to ownCloud, it’s easy to share large files.
  • Ability to access your files anywhere and share files to anyone, regardless of whether they have an NSID.
  • Personal disk quota increase to 50 GB.

ownCloud can be accessed via iOS and Android apps as well as online and from university computer labs or Cabinet.

To start taking advantage of ownCloud, visit the ICT website and follow instructions for downloading the ownCloud apps or accessing the service online.
