Data storage

Servers at HHU

Server hosting

HHU institutes and facilities are able to book virtual machines at the ZIM, which operate within a secure infrastructure.

File server

Institutes and facilities can apply to the ZIM for hard disk storage space on secured (virtual) file servers.

Cloud storage


Part of the European Data Infrastructure (EUDAT) project, the B2Drop data exchange service enables researchers to synchronise their research data and exchange it with other researchers.


A simple, user-friendly option for exchanging large quantities of data, GigaMove is provided by RWTH Aachen University.


The cloud storage service for North Rhine-Westphalia is based on the Owncloud software and offers all HHU members 30 GB of free storage space.
