The state service bwSync&Share is an online storage service for employees and students of universities and colleges in Baden-Württemberg. It has been operated at KIT since January 1, 2014 and enables users to synchronize or exchange their data between different computers, mobile devices, and users.
This service provides every KIT employee with a KIT account with a high availability and central data repository for saving personal data and documents. In the following, this is also described as the **personal directory**.
The **personal directory** can **NOT** be shared with other users. It is independent of the OU affiliation of a KIT employee, i.e. the access does not change when the employee changes to another OU.
The SCC provides operators of an OPSI server with a repository of "standard software" for their daily use, as well as the software which is covered by the campus license.
The OPSI packages are updated immediately after the release of manufacturer updates, so that usually the latest versions are made available promptly.
Application installation and updating on local PCs is done at the SCC via Open PC Server Integration (OPSI). OPSI is used for the centralized management of software at the SCC.
This service is not yet offered for the KIT facilities. However, the SCC is prepared to provide consulting support and provides OPSI operators with a central repository for OPSI packages.
