Update: Cornell Strategic Storage Initiative, May 2021
Fact-finding and needs identification continues for storage solutions for Cornell. The Strategic Storage Initiative is holding meetings with leadership of groups that support the university's heaviest storage users. The conversations are providing detailed understanding of complex and large-scale storage use. The next step will be direct outreach to high-intensity users themselves.
On a separate track, Cornell staff are negotiating with storage solution providers to identify and ultimately contract for the services that are the closest fit with Cornell's overall functional and financial needs.
Those tasked with moving the process forward appreciate the community's patience as components are reviewed and a coherent, cohesive range of storage solutions takes shape. Relevant information will be shared as soon as it's firm enough to support planning and decisionmaking. For now, please continue to use your existing approach to storage.
