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).


  • Access to documents and data is 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 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 member logs into. For example, A classroom PowerPoint presentation 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. 


Standard network storage requests are provided at no charge.

Some requests for significant storage may incur a storage fee.
