The research directory on the Isilon is administered by LAS Infrastructure/Operations and Research IT. They have established the following procedures for researchers and IT technicians. Exceptions are possible and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- The goal of the research directory is to provide researchers with storage for data that can be readily accessed from any machine on campus (or off-campus via VPN). Data placed in the research directory is backed up. However, it is not designed as a destination to manually copy files for backup; if you need to have local data on your desktop or laptop backed up please contact your IT support personnel for an appropriate solution that will back up those devices automatically.
- Access to the directory will be controlled by a single group managed by LAS Infrastructure/Operations and Research IT.
- All requests for new Isilon directories or exceptions to these procedures should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
