The new national data storage service, called DeiC Storage, will give all researchers in Denmark the opportunity to store their data securely. DeiC Storage is an open data storage service where researchers can store, share and exchange data. The service can be used by all researchers in Denmark as well as their collaboration partners from the global research environment.
The service contains solutions for data that researchers want to make openly available. For storing personal sensitive data under GDPR, DeiC Sensitive Storage will be established. It will be separated from DeiC Storage but both services are based on the same technology.
Operates under Danish legislation
With the new data storage service, researchers at Danish universities gain access to a cloud-based service which operates under Danish law and where the development and future of the service is controlled by the Danish universities. The new data storage services will also make it easier to exchange data to and from HPC facilities and other research infrastructures.
The establishment of DeiC Storage and DeiC Sensitive Storage is an important step in the implementation of the "National Strategy for data management based on the FAIR principles". Both services will integrate with DeiC Dataverse and thereby support a FAIR publication of data and metadata.
DeiC Storage and DeiC Sensitive Storage will be established and operated by a consortium consisting of Aarhus University and the University of Copenhagen. It will be the universities' Front Offices that will support the use of the service at the individual universities.
