GigaMove 2.0

The GigaMove service provides a simple and user-friendly way to exchange large amounts of data.

This data exchange can only be initiated by a user who belongs to an organization that is a member of the DFN AAI Federation. Authentication is done via Shibboleth - no further authorization takes place. We are members of the DFN AAI and can therefore use this service.

This user either uploads a file via HTTPS protocol and passes on the automatically generated HTTPS download link - or this person generates an HTTPS link that can be used by the partner to upload a file.

The data is automatically scanned with an up-to-date virus scanner and deleted after 14 days (with the option to extend). There is an option to protect the download via password. A maximum of 1 TB of data may be stored per account, whereby the size of a single file may not exceed 100 GB.

More information can be found under this link at RWTH Aachen.

By the way: If you want to exchange data within our university, please use our network drives!
