Data Storage Acceptable Use

Data storage is a finite and valuable resource. Storage services provided to MSI users are solely intended to support data and computationally intensive research. Personal files that are not related to data-intensive or high-performance computing workflows should not be stored on MSI systems. The University supports a wide variety of storage platforms for many uses. Please visit OIT's Storage Services website to explore which option is best for you, and don't hesitate to send a message to if you have questions about what is an appropriate use of MSI storage.
