    RStor - Central Data Storage for Researchers

    Details

    RStor is being phased out. It used to be Research Computing's main data storage offering and was available to anyone in the Dartmouth community.

    RStor is based on the OpenAFS distributed filesystem which provides secure network file storage at relatively low cost. RStor is frequently used to share files across the Internet because it has strong authentication and flexible access control. This can be especially useful to researchers when they either need off campus access themselves or the ability to share data with non-Dartmouth collaborators.
