Box is a secure cloud-based content and collaboration tool which is primarily used to support groups and teams with collaboration on file-based content.

Box was originally introduced to the College in 2016 to support the management of research data. The commercial cost of storage within the Box tenancy is such that it is no longer sustainable to store research data in Box, therefore no new accounts will be provisioned in Box from 1 January 2022. ICT will work with those using Box to migrate all existing data from Box before 31 July 2022 to current alternative storage solutions.

The recommended service for storing research data is the Research Data Store. ICT also offers data storage through OneDrive for Business and SharePoint
