Storage Comparison Table
Researchers get access to multiple storage options through CSC. The comparison table below helps to decide which storage solution is right for you. We recommend creating a data management plan when considering data storage options. If you have questions, our Service Desk provides personal guidance and expert support in choosing the right storage solution for your data.
