AARNET CloudStor

AARNet's CloudStor service is available to support all CQUniversity research and academic staff.

Please Note: AARNet is decommissioning CloudStor on Friday the 15 December 2023. If you have a CloudStor account, act now to secure your data. Need help? Contact TaSAC.

Here's how it can help you:

  • CloudStor can be used as a replacement for Dropbox
  • You can access 1TB of free storage
  • Data is stored within Australia on the AARNet network - ensuring you get great transfer speeds and that your data is readily available
  • You can use CloudStor to readily sync data on multiple machines (such as your work computer, laptop and home computer), which can be really handy for things like editing thesis chapters or research papers - see Desktop Syncing for installation guide
  • Cloudstor can provide you with an additional method for backing up your precious data to ensure it's secure
  • You can even collaborate with your trusted colleagues on large data sets  (by either using the "share with a link" functionality or by using a shared collaboration workspace).
