Data Storage

There are many storage options available for the NC State University community overseen by NC State’s Office of Information Technology (OIT). Please refer to OIT’s Storage Resource Summary Chart for more information.

Each NC State researcher may obtain an allocation of research data storage to use during their employment at NC State University. PIs for awarded grants may also request research data storage space for the grant based on the storage requirements as described in the grant’s data management plan. Please see OIT’s Research Storage web page for additional information, including a link to log in to the research data portal, which provides details about how to grant computer and user access in the upper right hand corner under the "storage" tab. For questions about data storage at NC State, please email
