Oct. 31 deadline to apply for extra disk space for unfunded research projects

The 700 gigabytes of storage space will be allocated each autumn for one year. The hard disk space is intended to support large data sets (greater than 1 GB). Faculty must sponsor non-faculty applicants.

The service is offered by Information Technology Systems and Services (ITSS) and made possible by hardware donated by EMC Corp. Tom Cramer, manager of product and delivery for ITSS, says his department previously was unable to accommodate requests for large amounts of disk space.

"This is just a new opportunity for people to get large chunks of storage," Cramer says

Applications and details are available at http://www.stanford.edu/services/researchdiskspace .

Cramer said that if less than 1 gigabyte is needed, UNIX disk space can be requested from the Leland Systems Group at http://www.stanford.edu/group/dcg/leland-docs/diskrequest.html.
