NAS Space Allocations

About

ITS offers a Network Attached Storage (NAS) file service solution. Departmental storage is hosted on \\storage.unc.edu. Personal home directories are hosted on \\myfiles.unc.edu. This document discusses the allocation model associated with the service.

Departmental Allocations (\\storage.unc.edu)

Departments receive a subsidized storage allocation calculated on Full Time Equivalent (FTE) employee information. The data is extracted from campus Human Resources payroll reporting. The FTE information includes all employee types including temporary and student employees. The entire allocation is assigned to a departmental representative. Sub-allocation is the responsibility of the department.

Subsidized Allocation Calculation

Total FTEs in a departmental group X 10 GB = Subsidized Allocation

Note: Twenty percent of the allocation is set aside for snapshot reserves. Snapshots are the technology that allow for the restoration of previous versions of files and folders.

Personal Space Allocations (\\myfiles.unc.edu)

University full time-permanent employees are allocated 10 GB. Users must subscribe to the service (https://onyen.unc.edu) to receive their allocation. Eligibility for the service is determined at the time of subscription via an employee status lookup against the campus directory.

Note: Twenty percent of the allocation is set aside for snapshot reserves. Snapshots are the technology that allow for the restoration of previous versions of files and folders.
