Office of the Chief Information Officer

Subject:  Large File Transfer Pilot

Message Sent To:  All NOMAD Customers

What Is  Happening:

The Office of the Chief Information Officer is launching a NOMAD pilot of Large File Transfer (LFT) capabilities.  The service uses the Accellion appliance to allow NOMAD customers to safely share large files up to 10GB with other NOMAD users as well as those external to NASA.  Use of this service is voluntary.  Normally these files would be too large to send by email.

Detailed outreach deployment of the new LFT capability will begin in August at Dryden Flight Research Center and the NASA Shared Services Center with other Centers to follow in a staggered approach.  Center migration to NASA Consolidated Active Directory (NCAD) is a prerequisite to using this service.  Further details including an outreach deployment schedule for LFT is available on the NOMAD LFT Information Web Page at Please refer to it for future Center updates.


This activity will enable users to send and receive large files up to 10GB.
