DataStage is a secure personalized 'local' file management environment for use at the research group level, appearing as a mapped drive on the end-user's computer.

It can be deployed on a local server, or on an institutional or commercial cloud. Once the software has been installed on the server, there is no additional software for the end-user to install


DataBank is a scalable data repository designed for institutional deployment.

DataBank will provide a definitive, sustainable, referenceable location for (potentially large) research datasets and allow researchers to store, reference, manage and discover datasets.
