Research Data (Storage)
Research Computing Scratch
Research Computing Scratch is dedicated for only temporary storage. This space is generally used for programs that cause overflow where there is insufficient RAM. It cannot be used to permanently back up files. The data on a scratch disk can be erased dynamically or on a periodic basis.

Compliant Data Storage - Data Handling Matrix
Arizona State University staff and faculty routinely handle sensitive information including Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Student Records, Health Records, Financial Records, and Research Data. As part of its program to ensure that safe measures protect PII and other sensitive data in a robust and least intrusive manner, ASU provides requirements for encrypting data in transit and storage. Devices should comply with minimum hardware and software requirements for ASU-sanctioned FDE solutions. If a device cannot be encrypted because its operating system is obsolete, the device should be upgraded to a current operating system. If a device lacks the recommended hardware (e.g., minimum system requirements for compliant operating system, chipset including compliant TPM chip), the device should be upgraded or replaced with a compliant device. Below are links to resources regarding Compliant Data Storage – Data Handling Matrix.
