The service provides storage space for employees and students of the TU Ilmenau. The use of the service requires an account of the TU Ilmenau. Access to the storage space is possible via different ways (web browser, WebDAV, synchronization client, mobile client). When accessing via a web browser, additional functions (apps) are provided. Files and folders can be shared with others. This is not limited to users with an account, sharing can also be done via system generated links for third parties.
The service is linked to the duration of the university account.
The UniRZ operates several central file servers (OES - Open Enterprise Server), which provide storage space to students, employees and also the structural units via various protocols (CIFS, NCP). Each student (5 GB) and each employee (10 GB) automatically has their own home area available to them upon enrollment, which can also be enlarged if necessary. In addition, this central storage space is available for a wide variety of constellations in departments, institutes, central facilities or across the board.
The UniRZ of the TU Ilmenau provides a groupware service based on Microsoft SharePoint Server to support group work. A SharePoint project, called a site collection, represents a closed area. Websites, appointments, contacts, lists and files can be managed in a site collection.
