Access and login

Getting access

To gain access to the storage services, a formal application is required. The process is explained at the How to apply for a user account page.

Users must be registered and authorised by the project responsible before getting access.

To access or transfer data, we recommend to use ssh or rsync. More details on our page about File transfer.

The NIRD can be accessed via the following address

The login credentials are the same as for the old NIRD.

You will be logged into your home area /nird/home/$USERHOME


You as user are expected to migrate data from the old $HOME folder to the new $HOME folder by yourself. Please see Access to old NIRD session on how to do it.
