Network Data Storage

The Office of Information Technology offers secure disk space for the storage of work related data on the Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Network attached storage consists of hard disk storage and software for configuring and mapping file locations to the network attached device (like a computer linked to the UNR domain).

If you are accessing your NAS share from the wireless signal, or from off-campus, you will need to fully qualify the server from \\storage\ to \\storage.unr.edu\

Benefits

  • Access to documents and data are secured by limiting access to specific NetIDs. Personal shares are limited to a single NetID, Departmental/Group shares can have any number of authorized users. 
  • Storage spaces (shares) can be managed as a lettered drive to the local computer making storage and and recovery seamless from programs. For example: a personal share may be identified as the H: or U: drive and a group share may appear as the G: or S: drive. 
  • Documents and data are available from any machine within the UNR domain a faculty or staff members logs into. For example: A classroom PowerPoint present may be created using an employee's personal computer and retrieved from a classroom podium computer when the instructor logs on to teach. It is also possible to remotely access the University network from off-campus to retrieve files from STORAGE. 

Cost

Standard network storage requests are provided at no charge.

Some requests for significant storage may incur a storage fee.
