LabArchives Support for Large Files

LabArchives is dedicated to supporting researchers’ workflows and research data management best practices. This includes providing a variety of options when it comes to handling larger files that are often generated in the research process.

Large File Upload (LFU) options allow institutions to choose which solution works best for their management needs and data policies. Regardless of the option selected, all files–including smaller files stored on LabArchives ELN servers–are monitored and checked in our nightly integrity check of all attached files. In addition, researchers can simply upload large files to their notebooks rather than having to store files elsewhere and remember to link back to the notebook.

If you are interested in selecting a Large File Upload option for your enterprise or to increase the overall LFU storage, contact your regional sales manager or our enterprise team for more information.
