DataVault is now live After an extended development period, we are pleased to report an addition to the University of Edinburgh Research Data Service, adding value to research data for both researchers and their funders: DataVault – funded primarily by the university’s Digital Research Services programme – has gone live this week. DataVault is a companion service to DataShare, which is an institutional trusted digital repository for the deposit of datasets and related outputs by university researchers, to openly license and share them on the Web. DataVault consists of an online interface connected to infrastructure in the university’s data centres and a cloud storage account. The DataVault project has conducted performance and user acceptance testing. It is currently able to accept individual deposits up to 2 TB each, which will be increased as development and testing continue alongside the live service. Each research project can store contents in a single vault made up of any number of deposits.
