Data Store Intro

Each user has access to 100 GB of data storage, with the ability to request more allocation Learn all about our data allocation policy here.

When you are granted access to a CyVerse service, you are automatically added to the service’s mailing list. Default CyVerse mailing lists include the Data Store, Discovery Environment, and Atmosphere, as well as community developers and Foundation API developers. Once subscribed, you receive emails about maintenance periods and outages. You also can post messages to other list users, opt to receive list messages in batch or single emails, change your subscription email and password and other options, browse the list archives, unsubscribe from the list, and more. For information on subscribing to CyVerse mailing lists, see Subscribing to CyVerse Mailing Lists.
