University of Utah researchers have been asking for solutions for storing research data while conducting the research and after completion of the work. 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. Below you will find information on storage related to electronic lab notebooks, REDCap and LabArchives; the cloud solution from UIT, UBox; and the group and archive storage space from CHPC.

Research data should be stored within systems for which the University has a Business Associate Agreement (BAA).  These agreements outline the permitted use, disclosure, restrictions, and outlines many safeguards required to protect the restricted information that may be shared with the business associate. If you have questions regarding whether a particular software has a Business Associate Agreement, please contact Milton Burbidge ( in the Compliance Privacy Office at 801-587-9241.

For additional information on restricted, sensitive and public data see Rule 4-004C Data Classification and Encryption Rev. 1
