KanREN’s StormCellar storage service is co-located with our backbone network. Members may stream data on and off of the storage system using any of the supported protocols (NFS, SMB/CIFS, AFP, iSCSI). Service is provided for a simple monthly fee, without additional charges for moving data into or out of our cloud.
KanREN StormCellar storage is intended for institution level deployment; we cannot provision for individual students, faculty or staff. We do not charge for or limit the access to the service, but we expect the consortium to respect I/O resources are limited and work together to minimize contentions.
Each institutional account automatically allows access via your favorite transmission protocol. File level access even supports multiple protocols.
