What is it?

Each BSOE user has a home directory which is available on all supported computers and has a quota based on the type of account you have.

In addition, if your research requires more space, we offer "projects disks" for a recharge fee.

Both services offer RAID disk space, daily snapshots and off-site backups.

How much does it cost?

Home directories for BSOE users are offered free of charge.

As of 2016/2017, the recharge rate for projects disks is $0.08 per GB per year.
