The Cloud Storage Working Group is responding to challenges in effectively managing rapidly growing cloud storage. The group is evaluating opportunities for community action in both policy and technical arenas, through sharing of best practices, documentation, and identification of opportunities for improved methods. The Working Group will seek to engage cloud service providers and allied community groups in conversation to better understand ways to achieve cost effective and sustainable management of cloud storage.

The Cloud Storage Working Group was chartered by CSTAAC and supported by Internet2 NET+ staff. The current focus is on providing higher education-specific feedback to Google as it relates to Google Workspace for Education, and on the creation of a repository of best practices and documentation on the following topics:

    • Deprovisioning of Accounts, working group of 20+ universities led by Chuck Boheim, Cornell University
    • Data Migration out of Google Workspace for Education, working group of 10+ universities led by Hellen Zziwa, Harvard University
    • Communication, working group of 10+ universities led by Matt Klein, Cornell University
    • Quota Management, working group of 20+ universities led by Justin Zemlyak, Indiana University
