Pilot service: large-scale, long-term filestore

ISS will shortly start testing the feasibility of giving significantly larger filestore quotas to staff and PhD students. In the pilot scheme, qualifying users will be able to request a “Store Folder” of 20GB, in addition to their standard 2GB Drive H.

The Store Folder is intended as an “archive” for inactive files which need to be kept for a long period of time. It will have the qualities that are associated with the Drive H filestore in terms of security and accessibility from multiple locations, but backup and restore services will be less.
