Network Data Storage
University IT offers secure disk space for storage of work-related documents and data on the Network Attached Storage (NAS) system. Network-attached storage consists of hard disk storage and software for configuring and mapping file locations to the network-attached device (like a computer linked to the UNR domain).
If you are accessing your NAS share from the wireless signal, or from off-campus, you will need to fully-qualify the server from
- Access to documents and data are secured by limiting access to specific NetIDs. Personal shares are limited to a single NetID, Departmental/Group shares can have any number of authorized users.
- Storage spaces (or shares) can be mapped as a lettered drive to the local computer making storage and recovery seamless from programs. For example: a personal share may be identified as the H: or U: drive and a group share may appear as the G: or S: drive.
- Documents and data are available from any machine within the UNR domain a faculty or staff member logs into. For example: A classroom PowerPoint presentation may be created using an employee’s personal computer and retrieved from a classroom podium computer when the instructor logs on to teach. It is also possible to remotely access the University network from off-campus to retrieve files from the NAS.
