Project storage

Faculty members and industrial partners can request a shared project space for their group on our enterprise network attached storage.  The system is highly redundant and designed for 99% uptime.  The directories are backed up daily off-site by UBIT.  The initial allocation is 500GB but this can be increased up to 1TB for free.  After that, there is a nominal cost of $663.78/TB for additional storage for UB faculty & groups.  External groups & collaborators are charged $1000/TB.  NOTE: Faculty with joint positions at UB and Roswell can only qualify for the UB rate if they use UB funds to purchase the storage.


To purchase additional storage, please add a subscription request in Coldfront for Project Storage and we'll contact you for payment information.  Instructions to request a new subscription can be found here

Archival (budget) storage

CCR also offers a lower-tier storage option.  There is NO backup of data for the budget storage directories.  The cost is $150/TB with a minimum purchase of 10TB.  Initially, maximum purchase is 50TB.  This rate is for UB faculty & groups.  External groups & collaborators are charged an extra check cashing fee by UB so the cost per TB is higher. Request a quote for an exact price by submitting a ticket to CCR help.  NOTE: Faculty with joint positions at UB and Roswell can only qualify for the UB rate if they use UB funds to purchase the storage.
