Research Storage


Service Overview

Each grant awarded on or after July 1, 2016 is eligible to utilize 1 terabyte of storage space on OIT’s Research Storage system. The storage is available for the duration of the grant plus 10 years. The availability extends beyond the end of the grant to assist with data retention and dissemination needs related to data management plans.

Standard Research Storage

OIT Research Storage can be accessed from computers with a static IP address after entering the computer’s IP address or hostname in the Research Storage Manager portal. Access to the storage is protected by requiring users to authenticate to the university’s WolfTech Active Directory domain. Therefore, the computers must be joined to the domain. The PI of the project automatically has access to his or her allocation. Additional users may be granted access via the Research Storage Manager portal. The portal automatically synchronizes a corresponding WolfTech user group associated with the storage allocation. Users that will access the data must be members of the corresponding WolfTech group.

NIST 800-171 Compliant Storage

Only NIST 800-171 compliant computers are allowed to mount the compliant storage. Connections between the compliant computers and compliant storage must use NIST 800-171 compliant networks.
