The service offers a range of interesting applications which facilitate for scientists, teachers and students mobile working with several devices far more efficiently. It is an important component of GWDG’s growing range of Cloud-Services which will shortly be expanded by “GWDG Compute Cloud”.
“GWDG Cloud Share” is a service similar to well-known commercial Storage Cloud and Data Synchronisation services. To this effect GWDG makes use of the software “Power-Folder” from the same-named company. The service is simple, fast, and secure to use via the available client-software or platform-independent web interface. The possible applications, in particular in the increasingly widespread area of mobile working, are multi-faceted. This includes in particular the simple synchronisation of data via different devices e. g. PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Likewise, the service enables collaborative work with multiple users or serves as an alternative for the dispatching of larger email attachments.“GWDG Cloud Share” eliminates the need for the often laborious maintenance of mobile data; the tedious copying and transporting of data onto a USB stick or the sending of files by email all of which are no longer necessary. The required data is available for use from anywhere anytime via “GWDG Cloud Share”. Off-line usage of files is also possible; changes would then be posted or received respectively with the next online connection and synchronisation.
The service is securely operated from the computing centre of the GWDG. All data is stored on dedicated databases of the GWDG. In this way the current data security requirements, especially those in the field of science, are fully complied with.
Mobile clients from the “PowerFolder” software developer are currently developed for the wide- spread mobile platforms iOS and Android, which will soon be available. Thus it will become even easier to access one’s data anytime, anywhere. Upon completion by the developer, the mobile clients will automatically be available to users of “GWDG Cloud Share” as well, analogous to the desktop clients already in use. Parallel to this, the service will shortly be integrated into the Self-Service-Portal of the GWDG, through which clients can independently set up and configure services.
The use of the “GWDG Cloud Share“ is available to all users of the University of Göttingen and Max-Planck-Society free of charge within the framework of basic services. As standard, 10 GigaByte storage space is available per user and can be increased if required. Furthermore, the GWDG offers this service to other universities and institutions upon request at attractive conditions. Especially those 15 universities participating in the “Niedersachsen Storage Cloud” can receive 1 GigaByte storage space per user free of charge provided the respective university decides to use the service.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
