CERNBox

CERNBox provides cloud data storage to anyone who has a standard CERN computing account. You can store your data, share it and synchronise it across devices - smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, the lot!

Please note that CERNBox is the main cloud file storage solution at CERN.

CERNBox overview

The data can be accessed from any Web browser or file explorer, and you decide which data you want to share with other individuals or groups of collaborators. You can, for example, keep your folders on CERNBox and synchronise only the ones you use often, or you can synchronise part of the interesting data from your experiment on to your laptop for testing.

CERNBox also integrates with some applications to allow collaborative editing of interactive notebooks for Physics analysis, as well as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) files. Refer to the relevant chapter for more details.
