For faculty members with Research Computing investments, GatorBox has provided a Dropbox-like interface for accessing storage. The software behind this interface was created and maintained by ownCloud. This company has recently undergone several major changes, and the university is compelled to discontinue the GatorBox service as a result. The last day of the GatorBox service is scheduled for June 30, 2017.
GatorBox users may elect to use one of the following UF-provided alternatives:
- OneDrive @ UF (1TB available cloud storage)
- UF Dropbox for Faculty and Staff (1TB available cloud storage; faculty/staff only)
GatorBox users with questions about accessing the data stored on their Research Computing investment, or are otherwise concerned with discontinuation of the service, should feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss their storage needs.
