Research article (book contribution)


The campuscloud sciebo is a widely used service for higher education in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) in compliance with German data protection legislation. The project started in February 2015. Currently, there are over 200.000 registered users. Modernizing the infrastructure for future demands is one of the current major challenges of sciebo. Due to evolved technology, a modernisation of the setup became necessary. Not only for scalability, but also for the closer integration with other services, the shift to a Kubernetes-based platform was an obvious step. Today, the modernized setup consists of two synchronously mirrored server sites, each with a 5 PB net capacity Spectrum Scale file system and two Kubernetes clusters running ownCloud software.
