Upload your data to the CGC


You can upload your private data to the CGC and analyze it either discretely or together with TCGA data. The CGC provides a number of file transfer methods to suit your various requirements: * If you have data on your own premises (local machine or cluster) and want to upload it to the CGC (store it in the CGC storage), use the [Command-line (CLI) Uploader](doc:upload-via-the-command-line). If you prefer the visual interface over the CLI method, use our [Desktop Uploader](doc:upload-via-the-cgc-uploader). If you want to implement your own upload mechanism, you can use the [CGC API](doc:upload-files) as a low-level method of uploading data to the CGC that treats a file as an ordered collection of smaller parts, manipulates multipart uploads, and offers more direct control over uploads. * If the data is available on an FTP or HTTP endpoint and you want to upload it to the CGC (store it in the CGC storage), use [HTTP(S)/FTP import](doc:upload-from-an-ftp-server). * If the data is already available on a cloud storage service (AWS S3 or GCS) and you want to use it on the CGC without transferring it to the CGC storage, use the [Connect Cloud Storage](doc:connect-cloud-storage-overview) feature.
