CARS Data AccessΒΆ

The CARS Cloud Data Service provides cloud-based synchronization of data from CARS beamlines. This uses the Nextcloud software suite which works similarly to Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc in that files are automatically downloaded and synchronized between multiple client computers. By running this service on CARS computers, there are no arbitrary data limits, and remote users can get their data to on to their local machine as it is being collected at the CARS beamlines.

This documentation is broken into two section. The first describes how a user of CARS beamlines can connect and run the Nextcloud client application on their own computer to have data from CARS automatically sent to their computer. The second section describes how CARS staff members can create an account for a beamline user and select and setup folders to share with users.
