For institutions and large research projects where own branding is required, SURF offers a fully hosted institutional instance with the autonomy to configure the environment to your own requirements.

An designated administrator is responsible for managing and creating folder structures, user access, and determining quotas within his/her allocated environment. Project folder owners can manage specific project folders regarding access and structure.
