In line with Chris' message about Box, UNL is currently looking at whether a license with Box would be a good fit for us. If any of you with experience with the Net+ version of the service could answer any of the questions below, we would be very grateful.
Many thanks,

Subject: Box questions

·         How is Box currently funded?

·         Are you providing it to your students?

·         What happens when a user leaves the university?  Does their account/data get deleted, does it roll over into a free consumer version?

·         Do you have any rules about what kind of data can be stored on Box?  E.G. HIPA, PCI, grant data

·         How is it supported?

o   How much time/administration does an instance take from a school?

o   How are different policies handled for different types of users?

o   Are there admin tools to report on these users for cleanup?

o   Is it just-in-time provisioning for accounts or does there need to be some kind of a load?

o   Are there existing materials that were used to help technicians support end users?

·         What happens when we bump against the overall storage limit?

·         Any issues with getting it adopted across campus?

·         How are you using box as a service on your campus?

o   As collaboration software

o   As a replacement of AD file shares

o   As an archive/backup of files stored on your devices
