At 8AM on Friday morning, July 25, IT will add Box account provisioning to the campus account management system. The Rice Box service provides faculty and staff a U.S.-hosted, NetID-authenticated 30GB space that is appropriate for research and other sensitive Rice data for sharing, collaboration and temporary storage.
The July 25 update will allow new faculty and staff to access their Rice Box accounts more quickly. Adding Rice collaborators will become simpler because the Rice community names and email aliases stored in Esther will be searchable in Rice Box. In addition, active graduate and undergraduate students will now be able to access their own Rice Box spaces (1GB) and upload data to their faculty member's project or research group space.
Updates will be posted to the IT web site: it.rice.edu.
