Benefits of Using Network Data Storage

A few of the benefits of using network data storage include: 

  • 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.
