B3LAB - Safir Storage

Developed by TÜBİTAK BİLGEM Cloud Computing and Big Data Research Laboratory (B3LAB), Safir Storage(Safir Depo) is a national and secure cloud object storage application. The objects stored on Safir Storage can be accessed from anywhere at any time via smartphones, tablets or computers over the internet.

File operations such as folderization, moving, renaming can be performed on all kinds of files such as documents, audio, photos, videos uploaded to Safir Storage, as well as online viewing, editing and versioning of office documents via LibreOffice Online/OnlyOffice. Thanks to the object sharing feature, files/folders in Safir Storage can be easily shared with anyone and office documents can be edited jointly. Safir Storage members can create groups with other Safir Storage members using group management functions and share files/folders with these groups.

In Safir Storage, which offers smart service add-ons with machine learning capabilities, analysis operations can be performed on uploaded documents, images and videos. Documents shared in Safir Storage can be classified by labeling them according to their word density, and document summaries can be extracted. Virus scans can be performed on uploaded executable files and the user can be informed before downloading infected files. With the version comparison feature, changes in different versions of text files can be viewed and the percentage of difference can be determined. Images and videos stored in Safir Warehouse can be labeled and classified according to their image/sequence content.

In addition to the Safir Storage web client, there are desktop and mobile clients, and Safir Storage desktop clients offer the ability to work offline.

For files and folders, all clients have end-to-end cryptographic encryption capability with a distributed key architecture. Thanks to this unique capability, no one other than the user (including system administrators) can access the entire key and access encrypted shares. Safir Storage allows security services and trusted service authority to come together to generate the user key if needed, thus preventing data loss. In secure storage, files and folders are encrypted on the client side and stored fully encrypted on the network and in the cloud. In addition to encrypting the user's personal files/folders, encrypted file/folder sharing with other users and groups can be realized.

Built on open source and highly available cloud technologies, Safir Storage has a rapidly adaptable and widely scalable structure.
