Network storage
Secure, reliable, safe, fast, effective. Perfect for very sensitive data, that is not too large. Every staff member receives 1 GB of network storage at no charge.​ Additional storage can be purchased at R10.00 per GB

External hard-drive
Great as a second form of data backup medium
Fast, high data volumes, fairly safe and secure. Various external hard-drives can be purchased via IT procurement, send an e-mail to quote@sun.ac.za for related quotes.​

USB flash-disk
Great for short-term file transfer, but not to be used as data backup medium as no data recovery is possible. ​
