Why should I use University services to store my data?

Storing data on Deakin's managed systems ensures:

  • Your research data is accessible, secure, stable, backed-up, retained and archived
  • You have full control over who has access
  • You can request greater amounts of storage if needed
  • You meet obligations in the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research
  • You meet data storage requirements for funding bodies
  • You can share data with other Deakin researchers
  • You reduce the risk of loss, theft, damage and corruption, as well as breaches of confidentiality and privacy and Intellectual Property violations.
