About Mirsal

Mirsal is a web based application that allows authenticated users to securely and easily send arbitrarily large files to other users. Users without an account can be sent a guest upload voucher by an authenticated user. Mirsal is developed to the requirements of the higher education and research community. It is primarily of interest to users who need to send files larger than those allowed by e-mail systems (typically limited to 10MB to 20MB depending on the e-mail system).

Mirsal is currently configured to allow files to be sent up to 50GB in size, although due to typical end-user network connection speeds and network performance conditions, it will be most useful for files in the 10MB to 50GB range. Unlike regular e-mail attachments, where the contents are included in the e-mail, Mirsal places the file contents on the Mirsal server and an e-mail is sent to the specified recipients informing them how they can retrieve the file that has been temporarily stored on the Mirsal service.

A file placed on this service is automatically deleted after at most 20 days (whether or not it has been retrieved by the intended recipient(s)), and once deleted, is not available for retrieval by either the user who placed the file on the server or the intended recipient(s).
