File Storage


Need space to store data? ITS offers a primary file storage service for departments. This storage is provided through enterprise-class network attached storage (NAS), letting you store and retrieve files from a central location via the FSU network. Simply access the files directly from your computer through a mapped drive. File storage also can control exactly which individuals have access permission, creating drives for users, teams, or the entire department.
