Block Storage

IT Services’ Block Storage service offers our server disk storage services at a significant bulk discount.

Server Disk Storage balances performance and reliability with cost. For most services, the level of performance and reliability are more than sufficient; examples include email and calendar data, and the databases that support HelpSU.

Server Disk Storage supports SAN and NAS connectivity. 

Note: This service does not include backups. Backup and storage are two separate services. IT Services offers a Block Backup service, which may be used in parallel with Block Storage. The storage team works with clients to customize backups to the needs of their applications.


  • Competitive pricing for 10 TB blocks of server disk storage
  • Industry-standard performance and reliability
  • Additional performance (IOPS) is available
  • Tailored directly to each individual storage environment and set of requirements
  • Annual pricing by fiscal year, billed in 12 monthly increments
  • 24x7 monitoring and response to performance and component failures
  • Regular hardware refreshes on a rotational basis at the end of the warranty cycle
