UFIT: Low-Cost Basic Storage Is Now Available

UF Information Technology (UFIT) now offers a basic storage tier. This is the lowest-cost durable SMB storage option available. Basic storage will be encrypted at rest by default and have a daily snapshot, which is retained for seven days for data recovery purposes. (The snapshots are intended for retrieving your data within a week’s time, provided the data center and the storage devices are intact and not impacted by any true physical damage or disaster.)

The basic storage tier is the simplest of offerings for the archiving and storing of large volumes of digital content/data/files and may be requested through the submission of a myIT ticket to the UFIT Storage Team. The features of the basic storage tier include the following:

  • Min/Max Requested Size without approvals – 250GB/10TB
  • RAID Protection
  • Single Site High Availability
  • Access Protocol – File (SMB Only)
  • Encrypted – While at Rest
  • Average IOPS per TB – 5
  • Cost per TB, per month – $3
