CyBox Cloud Storage


CyBox is a place where you store and share files for your own use, and share with others at ISU, or with collaborators anywhere in the world.

CyBox is a good solution for collaborative documents, small files, or archives of large files. It is not recommended for large data files that you are actively working with, as the transfer time up/down from the Box cloud service will be too long to be useful.           

If you plan to use CyBox for research data, we strongly encourage you to ask us to create folders for the lab which will persist independently of any individual user account.  This will protect your data in the event that a postdoc, grad student, or PI leaves, allowing the lab to retain access to the data.
