Eliminating 8 Day Public

Beginning May 20th, 8 Day Public will no longer be available for temporary storage space in the labs and kiosks. To meet the needs of increasing file sizes and sharing, we recommend using one of our many secure and accessible storage solutions:

Pages: All Emerson students, staff, and faculty are provided 2GB of space on a server called Pages, which is backed up nightly. This can be used for file storage and to host web content. To learn how to connect to Pages, see this guide.

Cabinet: Cabinet is a staff and faculty resource for storing confidential and departmental documents, accessible only on the internal Emerson network. Each staff and faculty member has a private folder on Cabinet and each department has a shared, internal folder for collaborating and sharing. For information on how to connect from on and off campus, read this guide.

Google Drive: Did you know that your Emerson account comes with unlimited Google Drive space to create and share Google docs and store files of any type? Simply log in at google.emerson.edu and check out this guide for more.

Bin (Isilon): Bin is a specialized storage space for post production video editing over the network. For more info, read this guide.

Box.com: Box is a cloud storage solution similar to Dropbox or Google Drive to make storing and sharing documents easier for all users. We’re planning to introduce this to the Emerson community later this year.
