Vogl, R., Angenent H., Rudolph, D., Stieglitz S. & Meske, C.


Abstract
The majority of the public research and applied science universities in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) formed a consortium to start a jointly operated private cloud service to provide a free of charge, easy to use sync and share storage platform for the academic community fully compliant with German data protection regulations hosted on-premise at several university data centers. The system design with respect to software functionality and hardware setup for this service catering for a potentially 500.000 strong user community was grounded on empirical user studies from the very start.
