Requests for additional storage can be submitted throughout the year. To complete a request, users can log into myMSI from the MSI homepage. From the dropdown bar under their username in the upper left of the screen, they can select the group for which they would like to request storage. Users can also go directly to msi.umn.edu/group/GROUPNAME, replacing GROUPNAME with the name of the group for which they would like to request storage. Then, click "Request More Storage..." on your group's page.
Requests for more than 200 GB of storage will require the following information:
- Storage justification
- Specific accounting of how you will use the space requested
- How long will this data remain on primary storage?
- Why isn't second tier storage suitable for your data?
