Data Management: Storage, Sharing, and Publishing


In support of Boise State’s research mission, the Office of Information Technology (OIT) provides storage solutions for data sets of all sizes.

OIT provides up to 25TB of storage at no cost for each Boise State faculty and staff member. If you are a faculty or staff member working on a sponsored project and anticipate that your current allocation will exceed 25TB, please contact for a quote to include with your proposal.

Transfer & Sharing

Our team can help you get the right connection to move your data around for easy sharing, whether it’s using the university’s centralized 10GB fiber loop, the Science DMZ, the Idaho Regional Optical Network (IRON), Internet2, or Quilt.

We can also help get you set up with Globus, a service for transferring and sharing data from a variety of devices and endpoints using a web browser. Visit the Globus website to learn more and create an account at Once you’re set up, we can help with the data transferring or sharing process.


We also provide consultation, together with the Albertsons Library data management team, to determine the best options for long-term data storage, archiving, and publishing, including digital object identifiers (DOIs).
