Nextcloud Access and Login

Nextcloud Access and Login

Nextcloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. Nextcloud is functionally similar to Dropbox, Office 365 or Google Drive. The HPFC Facility is hosting Nextcloud, giving the opportunity to the users to store and share their files.

Access to Nextcloud can be requested through our ticketing system at hpc.support@cyi.ac.cy.

Our Nextcloud is accessible using the URL: https://drive.hpcf.cyi.ac.cy

Upon creation of your Nextcloud account, you will get notified about your username and password for accessing Nextcloud.

You can either use the Web interface to upload/view data or download the Nextcloud Desktop Synchronization Client to synchronize the data on your computer (recommended way).

The Nextcloud client, depending on the operating system you are using, can be downloaded from the below link:

https://nextcloud.com/install/#install-clients

Once the installation is completed, you will need to type the server name which is https://drive.hpcf.cyi.ac.cy and also give your username and password. Then, you will have to select which files you want to synchronize on your PC (so that you don't download on your PC all contents of the shared folder if you don't want to).
