ICS, Using Kumo in the Technology Services ICS

Instructions for setting up Kumo. The Kumo client is designed to map cloud storage as a local hard drive on an ICS Windows computer.

Using Kumo in the Technology Services ICS Labs

Kumo is a software client that allows you to map your cloud storage (Box, Google Drive*, Dropbox*, OneDrive*) as a physical hard drive when you are using an ICS Windows computer. Kumo is easy to setup and simple to use. Just authorize your storage accounts, and they’ll show up just like a hard drive on any ICS Windows lab computer station.

Important: Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox are not approved for the storage of institutional data.  

To get started, go to kumo.cites.illinois.edu and login with your campus credentials.

Choose the cloud solution storage you’d like to add and click “Authorize.”

Display authorization page

You’ll be asked to login to that account and you’ll authorize Kumo to link to that account. Storage that you have already added has a green checkmark.

Once you have authorized your cloud storage, this is what you will see when you are logged into a ICS Windows workstation.

Kumo is not available for OS X or Linux and cannot be used on personal computers.
