The Research Computing file and storage server is an online disk storage system maintaining computer data that is attached to the RHBS network.
All participating research departments in the (Core) managed environment are provided access to network storage in the form of mapped drives that are connected via an applied logon script when a user logs into the domain. For ease of support RWJMS has standardized on a separate drives known as (R). All files and folders that reside on network storage are backed up nightly. The Microsoft Volume Shadow service is installed on the server hosting network storage so that all file restorations do not necessarily need to come from tape. All network storage is subject to departmental quota enforcement as deemed necessary to ensure server stability and the completion of backups. All network storage clients should review the Acceptable Use Policy for information regarding the types of data that are allowed to be saved on network storage.
Workstations will conform to a standard hardware and software configuration. The use of a standard operating system and hardware requirements simplifies support and development environments, increasing system manageability. The minimum workstation hardware requirements, supported software listing, and recommended configurations are available in the Workstation Hardware and Software Standards document.
RWJMS research data users will authenticate to the core domain network with their core account credentials. Once authenticate they will gain access to the network shared resources within their respective department.
Data Storage and Backup
The network drive will be available for saving and sharing work data. The drive will also be backed up on a Daily and Monthly schedule.
The “R” drive is the departmental research data drive for storing files to be shared, accessed, and modified by anyone in the department.
