The wiki is extending on different services over time. This takes place when new services are implemented and sufficiently configured for operational use. The contents include a detailed descriptions on how new services shall be used as well as some technical hints.


There are basically three services in the domain that can be used. In the subsequent sections they are described in more detail.

Augmented productivity

Remote Sessions and Desktop

The hochstaffl-domain hosts a remote session host server providing various services throughout the internet. This server allows to execute remote applications over the internet. In general this service requires fast network connection for proper operations, hence at times of high (internet) network traffic load there may occur some latency. However, most services run smooth when accessed from a browser via the internet. The subsequent pages in this section provide detailed information on services provided and how they can be used by different users. A Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) server hosts Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop that can be accessed from remote users via a network connection.

Online Cloud

Access to the Online-Cloud of the hochstaffl-domain can easily be established from any web browser! This establishes a connection to the cloud storage server in the hochstaffl domain.

With intuitive user interfaces Pydio provides features to gain back control and privacy of your data. File sharing includes applications for web, desktop and mobile assuring that your end users can easily manage their critical documents everywhere. Pydio is hosted exclusively on the domains private server (i.e. cloud) so you can rest assured that files are securely managed under company control without third party contact.

File Server

Domain users can connect to the File Server, allowing them to securely store files on a 24/7 available network drive. In addition, via WebDAV the server allows users to share information over a network without having to physically transfer files by floppy diskette or some other external storage device.

EumetCast Dissemination Service

This service provides a wide variety of near real time high resolution satellite images. Eumetsat operates a fleet of weather and climate monitoring satellites that supply data, images and products – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to the National Meteorological Services of our Member and Cooperating States in Europe, and other users worldwide.
