Member Allowance and Costs

Storage Allowances

Maintenance and hosting of the DuraCloud™ platform within the TDL infrastructure is undertaken for members at no additional cost to them. TDL members receive the benefits of a professionally managed application and infrastructure, along with a “Space” within DuraCloud™ @TDL for ingesting content.

Additionally, each TDL  Member receives an allowance for any DuraCloud™ @TDL storage option as part of their membership fee, in the amounts seen below:

  • TDL Regular Members:  2TB/ year for storage
  • TDL Affiliate Members:  1TB/ year for storage

Costs for storage over these amounts will be billed back to the member institution on an annual basis. Periodic reports will be sent to members with information about their DuraCloud™ @TDL usage.
