Cloud.sage.edu upgrade 8/16 – 8/19

logo

 

 

We are very excited to bring you an upgrade to our remote file storage application (cloud.sage.edu).  The upgrades brings lots of new features as well as much needed stability.  With our new Cloud server we will be moving everyone’s “Home” directory to a new bigger faster file server.  This new file server will allow seamless integration with Cloud.

You will still be able to use your current H drive (home drive) during the migration, but the cloud server will be down until all user data has been migrated to the new file server.   You will know your data has been migrated when you receive an email like the one below. Once your individual information has been moved, you will need to log off and back on to all your windows sessions to be connected on the new server.

Features

  • Improved speed and stability
  • Increase in storage to 10GB
  • Uses Sage Credentials, easily share with other Sage members.

With Cloud.sage.edu you share your data with others, and give them access to your latest photo galleries, your calendar, your music, or anything else you want them to see. With or without password or time limit. Share it publicly, or privately. It is your data, do what you want with it.

Sample email during migration

Hello %username%;
Your home drive (H: Drive) has been migrated to our new file server.  Our new server integrates seamlessly with our remote file access server, cloud.sage.edu.What does this means for you?

  •  We have increased your storage from 2GB to 10GB
  • All of your files have been migrated to a faster more secure server.
  • All files will be waiting for you in both your “Home Drive” and on cloud.sage.edu (once all user files have been migrated).

The only action required on your part is for you to log out of all Windows sessions and then, log back in and your new “Home Drive” will automatically be mounted.

We have tested the process thoroughly, but if you do experience and difficulty please contact the Help Desk, Phone: 518-244-4777 Email: [email protected].
