Data Storage ($xxx/yr)

Data will be stored on managed University of Iowa, Information Technology Services systems. This is a secure space that includes daily backups*. The cost of 1TB of storage is $80/TB/Year. Space required for this project is approximately XX Terabytes. We request $80*XX TB = $XXX/year to support the storage needs of the project.

Note: *You must select a service that includes backups for this to be true.

Note: The $80/TB/Year cost does include backups but represents the lowest cost service currently available and may not meet your needs. Contact ITS to discuss details.
