Research File Storage

Container

Overview

Research File Storage (ResFS) provides easily accessible file sharing services to KU research projects, research groups and service labs. Any tenure track faculty member, designated research center, department or principal investigator on a research grant can purchase ResFS storage.

Stored data is accessible within the KU network or remotely via the KU Anywhere virtual private network (VPN). ResFS is protected by a RAID system. Data that is inadvertantly deleted or otherwise lost can be recovered through self-service snapshots. A Snapshot is a 'frozen,' read-only view of a volume that provides easy access to previous versions of files and directories for up to 30 days. To recover data, follow our Knowledge Base articles for PC or Mac. ResFS data is also mirrored in the KUMC datacenter for major disaster recovery purposes only.

If you need help with Research File Storage, please contact your IT Support Staff, or the KU IT Customer Service Center at 785-864-8080 or itcsc@ku.edu.
