Research Data Storage Service (RDSS) is available upon request to faculty researchers/scholars at the University of Iowa.  Each RDSS file share will be 3 TB at no cost to the user.  Extra space can be purchased. If needed, you can select to have your backups disabled if your data/research requires it.  Please note, this will be for your whole storage space and can not be limited to individual folders.

CIFS/SMB file shares can be audited and can contain Level III (sensitive) data (if audited).

NFS file shares cannot be audited and cannot contain Level III (sensitive) data.

The RDSS service is provided by Information Technology Services.
