Your H Drive Is Moving to the Cloud

You: "What do you mean my H Drive is moving to the Cloud?"
IITS: "IITS will be migrating all CSUSM Faculty and Staff H: drives to Box @ CSUSM starting in late September 2013."

You: "What is Box @ CSUSM?"
IITS: "Box @ CSUSM is a user friendly, cloud-based storage, file-sharing and collaboration platform, which will eventually replace the existing campus-provided H: drive and department share space."

You: "Why Box @ CSUSM?"
IITS: "Box @ CSUSM provides an enterprise-level solution that meets the needs of our Faculty and Staff by providing the campus with cutting edge file sharing and collaboration tools. Box @ CSUSM also allows you to access your own and shared documents whether on or off campus, anytime of the day or night and from devices like your desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android phone and/or Android tablet. "

You: "What are the features of Box @ CSUSM?"
IITS: "Box @ CSUSM provides many features like:

—  Each user receiving five times more storage space than with campus servers (up to 50GB).
—  The ability to collaborate easier with others -- on or off campus -- by providing the ability to share files and folders and comment/collaborate in these areas.
—  Improved access to your campus files whether on or off campus, anytime of the day or night and from devices like your desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android phone, and/or Android tablet.
—  Ability to view and share files from smartphones and tablets as quickly and securely as a desktop or laptop."

You: "When will I be notified of my H Drive migration?"
IITS: "IITS will be coordinating with each department and College to plan for the best time for the individual migrations over the next year."

You: "How do I learn more about Box @ CSUSM?"
