Data Management : Data Storage Options on Campus

Future Options

University of Utah researchers have been asking for solutions for storing research data. The Office of the Vice President for Research along with the Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC), Marriott Library, Eccles Health Sciences Library, UIT, and Bioinformatics have been working towards solutions. In the table below you will find information on storage related to electronic lab notebooks, REDCap and LabArchives; the two cloud solutions from UIT, UBox and Google Drive; and the group and archive storage space from CHPC. If you are already using Box or Google Drive, please see the instructions for transferring your account over to the University’s accounts to take advantage of the security provided. The CHPC also provides tools for secure large file transfer such as Globus.
