Shared volumes – saving and sharing documents

What are shared volumes?

Shared volumes are storage areas that are used by groups of people to store data that is of common interest to the entire group.


Shared volumes are normally used when groups need a data area for common storage and exchange of data, and preferably when small amounts of data are involved. The common areas are stored on fast disk and have a high degree of data security. If larger amounts of data are needed, take a look at the popular "storage hotel" option. 


The UiO internal price per TiB per year is 4,500, - incl. VAT.
