The Research Computing Center (RCC) deployed a central shared storage system named Rocinante, which was acquired through presidential strategic funding in partnership with the UNH Library, UNH Information Technology, and UNH Academic Technology.  This system offers up to 2TB of research storage space to UNH researchers without cost to the individual or unit. 

This storage is intended for researchers with a variety of needs including data archiving, temporary scratch space for data processing, large file size (i.e., too big for Box), and ability to create a second copy for added safety and security. Researchers can request up to 2 Terabytes of storage at no cost. If space permits, more significant amounts of storage will be available at a cost (yet to be determined).

The infrastructure is capable of storing data that falls into two of the USNH Data Classification Model categories: “Public” or “Sensitive” Data. Data with the USNH Data Classification "Restricted Data" must not be housed on the infrastructure at this time. If storage of Restricted Data is required, please contact RCC to discuss available storage alternatives.

RCC is planning the official rollout date for this storage at the start of this fall semester, with a soft rollout already in progress. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact the UNH Research Computing Center at
