You’ve probably heard of cloud storage solutions such as Google Drive, Sky Drive, and Drop Box. However, the University does not recommend using these solutions for University business because of sensitive data, security concerns, and other issues. Instead, the University recently introduced a service called Box at Penn State.
Box at Penn State is a secure, cloud-based, commercial file storage service made possible due to a contract that Penn State has with Box. (Unlike other cloud storage services, the servers for Box at Penn State are housed in the U.S. and managed by a PSU system administrator.) This service allows you to store many more types of University data in the cloud. And you can manage, access, and share your files from anywhere using your desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
In addition to file storage, Box at Penn State makes it easy to share files and collaborate with others within the University. You can also collaborate with people outside of Penn State as long as they have a Box account.
Box at Penn State is available to faculty, staff, and students. For more details about Box at Penn State, please refer to the FAQ and Terms of Service. The FAQ also includes information regarding the types of information that can be stored on Box as well as security measures taken by Box.
If you need more information or have questions about this service, please contact the Database Specialist.
