ITS offers affordable storage solution through Research Data Depot

WVU researchers now have access to a fast, reliable and secure centralized storage system through Information Technology Services. Researchers can easily access files in the Research Data Depot from the Spruce Knob HPC cluster and their desktop computers via a network share, Globus Online or SFTP. This service allows researchers to not just store their data, but to share it with both internal and external collaborators.

Direct access can be purchased for as little as $155 per terabyte for five years. Encryption and replication services that meet data protection/regulatory requirements are also available for additional fees.

All researchers interested in learning more about available storage services should contact Information Technology Services at More information is also available online.
