UP System Administration Explains Google Workspace Storage Utilization
The University of the Philippines (UP) System administration has released an official statement on the Google Workspace storage utilization.
A study of data supplied by the UP ITDC indicates that the current Google Workspace storage utilization of the entire UP System is 4.3. Petabyte (PB).
The UP administration has decided that UP will subscribe to shared storage space of 5.0 PB across all Google Workspace platforms for the UP community for the next renewal of the 3-year contract with Google.
UP System officials will renew UP’s agreement with Google with consideration given to anticipated growth, hence 5.0 PB for this year, 5.5 PB for the second year, and 6.0 PB for the third year.
The key point in the decision of UP officials is the priority given to procuring enough storage space for the University. Hence, the UP community can be assured that there is no danger that their files will be lost after the previously set cutoff date of July 29, 2023. We are suspending the storage cap until we can approve a rational use data storage limit for our community.
