Linking community and technology to enable FAIR data
If you have less than a 100GB of data, we can offer storage for free to you. Your data will be on our highest performance, safest storage facilities. You will get access to our High Performance Spinning Disk Storage (NAS) with geo-replication, hosted by the ICTS department of Maastricht University.
For larger data sets, we have several storage solutions available. Which one you need depends on your situation.
Available storage options
High Performance Spinning Disk Storage (MUMC-NAS)
€130 / TB / Year*
price upon request
€62 / TB / Year*
€15 / TB / Year
* The prices for the NAS and Ceph storage are based on storing your data on two different geographical locations (geo-replication). We can also offer storage without geo-replication for these options for half the price listed here. We would not recommend this because this will increase the risk of losing data but the option is available.
How to determine what option is best?
To exactly determine what option suits your needs best, we need to plan a personal meeting. In that personal meeting we can compose a mix of storage platforms that best suits your situation. When determining the best storage solution for you, we need to answer these questions:
- How much risk of losing data are you willing to take?
- Do you need to work with the data on a daily basis?
- How many years does the data needs to be available?
