Storage Cost Recovery
Existing storage charging model is not fit for purpose. . .
- Current model:
- up to 8 TB uncharged per funded project;
- 120 pounds per TB per year over and above.
- End-of-project conundrum:
- no method of charging for post-project archival.
- one-off, "forever" charge;
- covers RDS (active) and RDA;
- built into grant application.
