I’m really glad Krista asked this question, because it’s one we get asked at UC Berkeley all the time. We’ve launched a project as part of our Research Data Management program to come up with recommendations and a roadmap. We’re calling this “active research data storage” to distinguish it from preservation and sharing, but I’d love to hear how others describe this.

It’s pretty clear that there isn’t one answer to the question. A range of services is needed in order to meet the very different kinds of research needs. We’ve been developing a conceptual framework that looks at the intersection of a) the specific needs of the research project, b) the storage technologies and architectures available, and c) storage service characteristics such as cost and security.

Because this points to a potentially complicated 3-dimensional intersection, we are emphasizing the role of consulting. Four of the first questions we ask are:
a) Tell me a little about the research you are conducting.
b) Are your data sensitive or subject to restrictions (e.g., human subjects research, or via a data use agreement with a data provider)?
c) What is the maximum file size that you need to store (this ends up being a constraint on many services)?
d) Do you need to share these files with other researchers? At your institution or beyond?
Needless to say, these then lead to any number of other questions.

At Berkeley we’re still trying to come up with a good set of services that meet the different needs of scholars here. We point people to our campus-approved Box and Drive services, and our central IT (of which I’m a part) does have professionally managed storage services available for recharge fees that many find too expensive. We’re working with other campuses in our UC system that offer storage services as well, and we’ll continue to look at services like OSF and Figshare.

Regards,
Chris Hoffman
