What Is PantherFile(Xythos)?
PantherFile is a secure, web-based file-storage system that has been available to several staff and faculty at Eastern since August 2008. PantherFile allows users to access files for uploading, storing, retrieving, and sharing. Files can be easily and securely accessed over the Internet from any location.
On June 1, 2010, PantherFile became available to all faculty and staff. In order to gain access to the system, users are required to complete an online training video.
A standard 5GB of space will be allocated to each faculty and staff individually. Individual allotments of space will not be available to users until the individual has completed the online training session.
ITS is working with each department individually to provide a system that meets its file-sharing needs. We are hopeful that EIU employees will find PantherFile an empowering resource providing the self driven file sharing functionality they need.
