Large Scale Storage is available to all University of Iowa students, faculty, and staff. LSS provided through ITS is cost-effective and scalable without compromising performance. LSS is useful for backups, archiving, and storing large files (e.g. video or image files). LSS is also optimized for HPC workloads that demand high bandwidth and storage and is especially appropriate for researchers working with large data sets in need of additional backups. Support for this service is available Monday-Friday during normal working hours.
PLEASE NOTE: This service currently does not support Level III (sensitive) data, however, a pilot is being launched in January 2018 to allow Level III sensitive data and ITAR-Covered data (CIFS only) on the service. If you have any questions about the Compliant LSS project or if you are interested in becoming a pilot user, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
