ITS provide facilities for the storage of large volumes of data required for research projects that cannot be stored within the standard 10Gb home file system allocation.
This storage is a mix of:
Networked Research Volumes (R-Drive) use the storage in (i) or (ii) and can be mapped onto your Desktop computer. Secure access is mediated by Access Control Lists held within Active Directory Groups and if desired the data can be shared within groups. The file servers have a high bandwidth connection to the central High Performance Computing Facilities.
Approximate Data Storage Costs (as at March 2012):
The above costs are normally charged as a “one off up front” payment.
The Principle Investigator will need to detail:
giving a brief description of why they need to use the storage facility, why the data should be stored and for how long. Requirements for any encryption and levels of security will also be requested. Each applicant will be given the notional cost of the storage that they are applying for.
Applications for research storage should be addressed to email@example.com
