Storing Data on a Network Drive

You can store private data for personal use on the H-drive of your computer. You will be the only person with access to this ‘home’ directory. Your directory will be created when you start working for the UvA. You can access your directory from outside the UvA via VPN.

Access to UvA Network via VPN
VPN (Virtual Private Network) enables you to connect to the UvA network from practically anywhere, including your own home. In this way, you always have access to the network drives (H and P-drive) and the Self-Service Tool, even outside the UvA premises.

Costs

Individual members of staff may use the network drive free of charge.

Data stored here are automatically replicated on a second server, which serves as a back-up. It is also possible to bypass this back-up option. The storage space can be divided into directories per user. You can also make daily snapshots in order to retrieve overwritten or deleted data.

Costs

An invoice for this storage space is sent once a year (in July/August). Standard storage space costs €220 per TB per year. If a replica is not required, storage space costs €125 per TB per year.
