Shibboleth NCSU authentication can be used to access the VCL resources or the iCloud web server of the Data Grid.  UNCCH and UNCC persons have federated access to the NCSU iRods data grid (and vice-versa). The iCloud browser allows users to interface with the data grid via a web server running on the iCat (iRods) server.  Users can upload, download and examine metadata from anywhere with a web browser.
