Easily save and synchronize your files to your secure, personal
cloud account.

The Connect cloud-file storage system allows you to easily upload a wide range of research data and file types (e.g., EDS, EDT, PDF, PPT, CSV, etc.). Ideal for use with our cloud-based data analysis apps, the Connect platform is built on Amazon Web Services™ (AWS) infrastructure, making it easy for you to share even the largest files with collaborators, privately and securely thanks to our high security standards.


Your free storage amount will change automatically based on the instrument type you use (see table below), increasing to up to 1 TB of free storage.
In addition to the 1 TB of free storage, you can subscribe to one of our flexible storage plans that adapt to fit the needs of your team and project. Buy the amount of space you need, when you need it, then adjust it as your requirements change. See the table below for details about annual storage plans ranging in size from 25 GB to 1 TB. Learn more and buy ›

Backup and disaster recovery specifications

With the Connect platform, you can focus on your research—not on how safe your hardware and server facility might be. The cloud storage system follows industry standards for data backup and disaster recovery, and uses the AWS data center that has achieved SSAE 16 certification (verifies controls and design processes) and published a Service Organization Control 1 (SOC 1) report.
