Extended Data Storage

Information about the "Extended Data Storage" service. The service is available to KTH staff as an additional service in data storage.


The IT department provides extended storage as an additional service within data storage to the entire KTH, the service is not for commercial or personal use and is aimed at groups that want to store larger amounts of data. This service is an additional service to the regular common/project area data storage offered within KTH Windows, but users who are not connected to KTH Windows can also use the service.
