Are you a research-active member of staff? Do you know about new storage for your personal and shared research?

(22 November 2019)

You told us that you wanted highly available storage where you could keep your important research findings, data and analysis. This storage needed to be big enough so you didn’t need to keeping asking for upgrades. Moreover, you wanted to be able to increase the size and give access to others yourself. Here in CIS, we thought that sounded like a reasonable request, so we set about making it happen. Read on to learn more about Personal Research Storage (PRS) and Shared Research Storage (SRS).

Earlier this summer we were delighted to be able to offer all research-active staff two new storage services to meet these needs. Personal Research Storage (PRS) and Shared Research Storage (SRS).

The new PRS service gives research-active staff an automatic 1TB of storage space for your personal research. You will be able to self-provision increases yourself up to 5TB through our new Storage Manager Tool.

SRS will give users the option of additional shared storage beyond the limits of PRS (up to 100TB per share), and research projects.
