Information about services in the cloud
Services in the cloud or, in other words, services that are available via the Internet at any location and at any time, are available for almost every purpose. The providers already provide considerable resources (e.g. storage space) in free offers and the access options are extremely easy.
When using it - in private as well as in the professional environment - one should always be clear about the conditions and risks of the provider. In addition to the Sync&Share Policy Universität Hamburg on this page you will find information and practical examples for handling your data. You should use the services of the regional computing center, especially in the professional environment at the Universität Hamburg.
