Centralized Storage

OIT provides several standard storage offerings to align the technical requirements with the appropriate price point.  There are 5 standard offerings that align with a majority of the requirements requested. Storage can be accessed via the SAN (within OIT supported datacenters), or through NAS (CIFS or NFS access).  

A majority of storage requests can be turned around quickly for requests less than 2 TB. Short turnaround, larger requests may have delayed lead-times if additional capacity needs to be purchased. If your application requires a different configuration please contact the service desk

Openstack Swift Storage

In addition to the above standard solutions, OIT also offers a Swift Openstack solution.  Swift provides a fast and highly available programmatic interface to file storage usable by products designed compatible with either the Swift or Amazon Storage API.    Objects stored in Swift are available via the web API only.  Swift Object storage is priced at the standard NAS $/Gb/Yr rate.  See http://swift.openstack.org for more details on openstack. Or submit a general inquiry for the OIT Storage Team for more information.

 

Forecasting

A majority of storage requests can be turned around quickly for requests less than 5 TB. However, it is requested that the storage team be contacted as soon as the requirement is known to allow for proper capacity and resource planning.  Short turnaround, larger requests may have delayed lead-times if additional capacity needs to be purchased.
