Data storage

The different storage options available to La Trobe researchers have different characteristics and which one to use depends on the nature of your research and the type of data you are working with.

All La Trobe staff and students have access to CloudStor and are encouraged to use it for the storage of research data. 1 TB of storage is automatically available to each person and more upon request. It is ideal for the sharing of data with others and collaborations outside the University.
