The Common File System (CFS) was a UITS storage service for students, faculty, and staff at Indiana University. CFS was retired on May 15, 2006.

The Resources tool in Oncourse CL allows you to store up to 250MB of files online; this is now the primary file storage solution for the university. For more information, see the Knowledge Base document ARCHIVED: File storage in Oncourse.

A new file storage service for researchers became available in a public test phase late in 2005; for more information, see the Knowledge Base document ARCHIVED: Research File System (RFS) at Indiana University

The RFS is part of a rich suite of distributed storage services available to researchers at IU. For more information, visit:
