Increase Your Data Store Allocation

The default data storage allocation for each CyVerse user is 100GB and is intended for active data being analyzed. Any data you own or share with other users counts towards your allocation, including Community Released data in folders that you own. Data that others share with you and data published to the CyVerse Curated folders of the Data Commons are excluded from your allocation.

If you need more data storage for personal or shared use of a folder that already exists (i.e., your home folder or a Community Released data folder you own), complete and submit this form.

If you need an allocation for a new Community Released data folder, please use the Request for Community Released Data Folder form to request an increased allocation when you request the folder.

Information you provide in the form may be included in CyVerse annual reporting of impacts and resource use to our stakeholders.

Review process:

  • Requests of 100GB -10TB are usually reviewed within two (2) business days (review level 1)
  • Requests of >10TB are usually reviewed within two (2) weeks (review level 2)
