File Service

The GWDG provides file systems to their customers. To improve reliability of these systems they are redundant and a backup is carried out daily. These systems are housing the personal folders (typically P:\ drive) and shared network drives (typically W:\ drive) for Windows, as well as the home directory $HOME and the temporary home directory $THOME for UNIX/Linux. In addition to these drives the GWDG is providing a personal archive to every user which can be used by Windows and UNIX/Linux.

To access the UNIX/Linux home directories on Windows, samba service can be used.

To access the personal network drive („P:“ drive) from UNIX/Linux SMB Utilities can be used.

Merging the „P:“ drive and the UNIX/Linux home directories is one objective of the GWDG. This has already been achieved for some of our customers.
