Solving the Google Workspace 100 TB Storage Limit for Research Institutions Using AWS S3
Are you struggling to accept the storage limit policy changes for Google Workspace for Education?
Does the newly imposed 100 TB storage limit have you scrambling to find a new home for your data?
Don't want to deal with the headaches of building your own access and collaboration interface for S3?
In the modern era, research institutions are generating and analyzing larger amounts of data than ever before. This trend is set to continue, as new technologies like AI, machine learning, and big data analytics continue to evolve. As a result, there has been a growing need for research institutions to store and manage vast quantities of research data. However, Google Workspace for Education has recently imposed a limit of 100TB across all end-users, creating a serious problem for research institutions with larger data sets.
Gladinet provides an access and collaboration front end for AWS S3 that provides virtually unlimited storage for these institutions.
Why the Limit of 100TB is a Challenge for Research Institutions
Research institutions generate vast amounts of data that needs to be stored, managed, and accessed by teams of researchers, faculty, and students. However, Google Workspace for Education has recently imposed a limit of 100TB across all end-users. This is a challenge for institutions with larger data sets, as it is simply not enough storage to meet their needs.
The 100TB limit might be sufficient for some institutions, but for those who generate large amounts of data on a regular basis, this limit presents a significant problem. Institutions will have to either find alternative storage solutions, delete data or purchase additional storage, which is not only time-consuming but also expensive. In addition, researchers and students might have to spend time migrating data between platforms, which can be a tedious and cumbersome process. As of this writing, Google limits data transfer to 750 GB per day. So, if Google Workspace holds the only copy of your data, it will take more than 3.5 years to extract the first 100 TB!
