UFIT Research Computing recently updated its storage offerings. The UF prices, which are subsidized, have not changed. The new storage option ($25/TB/year) is called the “orange” option, while the existing /ufrc storage is now the “blue” option. The options support different use cases, summarized at Help > Getting Started > Storage.
Replicated storage is no longer a service offering, though storage of older (historical) versions of files is available. This can be provided with the tape backup option described at About > Policies > Storage > Data Protection. Development of a disk-based backup option is also underway.
Researchers who would like to discuss their data storage options are welcome to contact Erik Deumens, Director of Research Computing (email@example.com, 352-392-6980).
