Oxford University is celebrated throughout the world for the quality of its research, and to maintain that quality there is an ever-increasing need for researchers to store, access, manage and share the data they are working with, data that is of critical value. To better support them, the Research File Service (RFS) project will deliver a secure and resilient central storage facility for active research data. It will be available to all researchers across the University to enable active collaboration across departments and divisions.
RFS will deliver secure, scalable storage for active research data and will:
• Provide an easy-to-use, reliable service
• Protect active research data
• Facilitate compliance with GDPR and the University information security policy
• Enable researchers to collaborate safely within the University
