Central File Share

Description:

The Central File Share provides access over the network from the campus or via VPN to home directories (H: drive), departmental shares (M: drive) and many other central file stores. The service is supported by redundant systems with both on-line and encrypted off-site backups.

Users* receive 5GB of quota space in home directories while departments are allocated 100GB of quota space. Users and departments can use additional quota as needed for a monthly charge. Departments can also request dedicated space on the Central File Share servers: both replicated, high-speed storage and lower cost, lower-performance storage is available.

 

*Starting with the Class of 2017, undergraduates will be provided with 500MB of quota rather than 5GB. Google drive should be used as the default file storage location.
