Qiata MultiSpace

General Questions

What is WebDAV?

WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning. WebDAV is a standard for delivering files over the Internet.

The PersonalSpace from MultiSpace can be used flexibly and can be integrated into Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Use hundreds of apps for smartphones and tablets. These apps offer a wide range of functions so that you can access, edit or share your files from anywhere, because PersonalSpace works with the open WebDAV standard.

Before you start

What is Qiata MultiSpace?

With Release 2.0, Qiata now offers the first entry into "MultiSpace". So far, there are basically two usable areas (so-called "spaces") available to the user, namely the transfer area for the exchange of files or directories with third parties, and the team transfer area for the regulated collaboration of internal and external members of a team. Now, with the new PersonalSpace, the first MultiSpace variant is released and opens up completely new possibilities.

While all file transfers and team transfers at Qiata are permanently and comprehensibly recorded in an audit log, the new PersonalSpace function is different. PersonalSpace is the first of many other MultiSpace modules currently being implemented. An area reserved for personal use is now available for all authorized users.

From the user's perspective, PersonalSpace can be used in different ways. Since PersonalSpace also uses basic functions of the so-called WebDAV protocol, the user can integrate it directly into his operating system as a (virtual) drive. The files are actually on a drive of the Qiata, even if the user sees his files directly as a drive in his operating system.


How is the quota limit divided?

At Qiata there are two different quotas with the MultiSpace module. On the one hand the quota for the "transfer area" and on the other hand the quota for the "PersonalSpace". Both quota values can be set independently of one another, but cannot exceed the maximum quota limit of the company.


The Qiata system has a maximum quota limit of 100GB. A possible breakdown of the different quotas would now be 50/50, i.e. the transfer area gets 50GB and the PersonalSpace also 50GB. Of course, these values are variable - it would also be possible to split the transfer area: 70GB and PersonalSpace: 30GB.


It is important that the sum total of Transfer Quota and PersonalSpace Quota cannot exceed the maximum quota limit of the system.
