Strathcloud is a cloud-like application for storing files and folders.
*Strathcloud will be retired as a data storage service on 31st August 2023.
- If you wish to retain data currently stored on Strathcloud, you must migrate the data to an alternative storage service by 31/08/2023. Data remaining on Strathcloud after this date will be deleted automatically.
