Research Data Storage Facility
The University Research Data Storage Facility (RDSF) is available to researchers from all disciplines, to store their research data securely over the long term.
The RDSF (Research Data Storage Facility) is designed for bulk long term storage. It is not designed for performance.
The RDSF is a set of disks and servers housed in two separate data centres. We are in the course of adding a large tape storage facility for data that needs to be accessed less frequently.
We ask that you do not run applications that access the RDSF filesystems. You can access your RDSF data from Windows, Mac or Linux.
For information about the filestores designed for your working data including information on Temporary Network Storage pilot service for working research data please see the main IT services pages about all the University filestores available to researchers.
