The Distributed File System (DFS), is network storage space that will allow more ways to share and access your files from various operating systems and remote locations. Initially, you'll have 500 MB of storage space, as demand grows we will continue to look at ways to increase storage space. For those of you who work remotely or travel, you will be able to access files stored in your Humanities home directory from anywhere off-campus through a secure ftp client, or a compatible WebDAV client.

The network file system also adds a shadow copy feature that allows for quick file restorations without going to backup tapes. For those of you using Windows, you'll be able to access these "snapshots" of your home directory from previous dates allowing for quick restorations. For OS X and Linux users, CDH technicians can assist with restorations. Storing your files on the Humanities server also ensures that it's secure, safe, and backed up on a regular basis, alleviating worries of your computer hard drive failing, or losing flash memory keys. You will also be able to setup your own file sharing to allow your Humanities colleagues to access files you give them rights to at their leisure. While we've added some features we hope will enhance your access and collaboration abilities, we continue to work with vendors such as Apple, to include native support for some these advanced file sharing and restoration features.
