Research File Service (RFS)
The Research File Service (RFS) is a University-approved central storage facility for active research data, available to internal research staff across all divisions. RFS is designed for live data storage and provides a reliable, resilient, secure, and scalable service, with the assurance that your research data is safely protected and accessible. University of Oxford research staff can currently request between 100GB and 20TB of data for their project free of charge.
RFS can be accessed via SMB (as a mapped drive) across the University network, or through VPN outside of the university. Currently RFS is suitable for the storage of public and internal data only.
