Service: Data Storage Services
ITS provides several data storage services to meet the needs of students, faculty and staff.
At UNCG, file storage can be hosted within the UNCG Datacenters or with third party service providers in the cloud. ITS assigns all data storage services it provides with a Storage Lock Rating so that Data Stewards can make informed decisions about the best option for different classes of data.
Please review the Data Storage Guidance table for information regarding Data Classifications (minimal, low, moderate and high risk) and their associated Storage Lock Rating.
|Offering||Lock Rating||Default Quota||Quota Increases||Location||Unique Features|
|Special Volumes||2-lock||Per Request||Y||UNCG||
|Secure Volumes||3-lock||Per Request||Y||UNCG||
*3-lock rating applies to the data storage location. Care should be taken to only access the data from appropriately secured devices.
- Data Backup and Data Restore Service
ITS makes a secure copy of all administrative systems data, individual and department network file space, and special volumes.
