CAEN is piloting a service called Kumo which allows you to map your cloud-based storage drives such as U-M Box and U-M Google Drive to a CAEN lab computer. Originally developed by Indiana University, it is simple to use and allows easy access to your Box and Google drives.

Setup is easy; just authorize your cloud storage accounts, and they’ll show up as a network drive on any CAEN lab computer. To start using the service, simply go to the website kumo.engin.umich.edu and sign in with your uniqname and UMICH password. You can then authorize your account to access any or all of the available cloud storage services. You only need to authorize once. After authorizing, the next time you sign into a CAEN lab computer you should see those cloud storage options appear as network drives under the "Computer" icon.

Important Notice: The Kumo service is in a pilot deployment state. CAEN is in the process of finalizing software licensing for the Kumo service, which is expected to be completed by the end of January 2017. Students can register and use the Kumo service normally today, and should not notice any difference in the service once the software licensing is finalized and the service moves from pilot to production.
