Additional data storage for researchers

12 May 2011

Researchers now have access to additional data storage space through the Research Data Storage (RDS) tool.

RDS enables you to record and retrieve critical research data (observations, images, survey results, simulation and modelling data).

It is accessible through a UniKey protected shared network drive from Windows, Macintosh or Linux computers.

The data is stored on a remote server, with a backup copy made nightly.

Approximately 10 terabytes of extra storage space is now available to the RDS service per month.

To request additional data storage space, please complete the request form available on the eResearch website or contact the ICT Helpdesk on 9351 6000.

The eResearch support team aims to process requests within a week of submission. Please note that storage is allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis.
