Understanding the Cloud Storage Options at IU

Do you understand the cloud storage options at IU?

Do you understand the cloud storage options available to you at IU? If not, or if you’re not sure, the recording of our recent webinar on this topic will help to clarify.

View webinar recording. View the webinar recording for “Understanding the Cloud Storage Options at IU.”

Much of the discussion was based on information from Tom’s recent blog article, Pros & Cons of Using Different Types of Cloud Storage at IU.

In this webinar, we covered:

  • strengths and weaknesses of cloud storage options
  • which cloud storage options are supported by IU
  • what kinds of data can be stored on each cloud service
  • how cloudstorage.iu.edu works

These links were shared during the webinar for additional information:

Co-Editing Documents Online in SharePoint 2010

Go Paperless! IT Training can help!

This is part of a series of articles that will appear over the next few months as part of the Go Paperless initiative at Indiana University.

Scenario Setup

Let’s suppose I’m sharing a description of one of our IT Training workshops with my colleagues and I need some quick feedback to help finalize it.

I’m sharing with colleagues in my IU staff department who know how to use SharePoint 2010, because our intranet runs on SharePoint. The information I’m sharing is work-related. The file I am sharing is a Word document less than 1GB.

SharePoint would work well, in this case. So would Box. But let’s also suppose we keep all of our workshop descriptions in SharePoint. Point SharePoint—for the win!

But. Let’s also suppose that everyone I want to share with is at a conference, and I know they just have their tablets with them—all different kinds of tablets.

What now? To the Internet!

Pros & Cons of Using Different Types of Cloud Storage at IU

Go Paperless! IT Training can help!

This is the first in a series of articles that will appear over the next few months as part of the Go Paperless initiative at Indiana University.

There are many different cloud storage solutions on the market today. Some of them are officially supported by Indiana University. A cloud service is usually a storage and/or sharing platform where the physical location of the storage medium is unknown and unimportant to the end user. For example, if I upload something to one of these services, it isn’t clear where it’s going; it may be going to one of many data warehouses somewhere in the world.

This article will discuss several of those officially supported cloud storage applications and several non-supported services. I will describe the service, then discuss the pros & cons of each. Lastly, I will include some hyperlinks to training resources so you can explore the options further.

Here are the applications we will review:

  • Officially Supported
    • Box
    • SharePoint
    • Slashtmp
  • Non-Supported
    • Dropbox
    • Google Drive
    • OneDrive

Learn With Andy #3 – Exploring SharePoint 2013

In technology training, one of the most important and time-consuming parts of the process is staying current on technology. In this video series, I will be showing you what I go through when learning a new technology.

Sometimes we’ll be looking at a software program I’ve worked with very little and need to learn, other times I’ll look at a new feature in a program I know very well, and sometimes I’ll be looking at a web technology I’m trying to become familiar with.

This week, we’ll look at SharePoint 2013 and see what the new interface looks like.

Enjoy this series each week!
