A StorSimple backup system has been implemented by ITS. We have tested it for a couple of months and it seems to perform well. The extra network drive is available on all imaging machines (except for the Zeiss NLO system, that will be connected to the net in the coming weeks) and can be found at O:\Research\CCI\#equipment\##user##. Writing on the drive can only be done on our machines, users will be able to read only from these drives so data will be available but secured. We are implementing a secure logon system for users to read data from this drive.
