While not an ARCC service, ARCC provides support for UW researchers who wish to use Google Workspace (previously called GSuite) storage for their research projects. Please keep in mind that this storage is now limited 100 TB across UW and requests for Google Workspace storage will be thoroughly vetted.

The Difference Between ‘My Drive’ & ‘Shared Drive’
Shared drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device.
Unlike files in My Drive, files in a shared drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
Consider using a shared drive in these situations:
You’re working on a project or event with a group of people who all need access to the same files.
Most of your files are shared with the same group of people.
Your files share a consistent theme or topic.
The content you want to store isn’t personal and is of interest to a specific team or group.
