The SweStore nationally accessible storage is available for researchers financed by VR (which includes all researchers using SNIC compute resources) and FORMA.
Please see http://www.snic.se/apply-for-resources/instructions-for-swestore-allocations

SweStore is also in collaboration with [http://www.ecds.se/ ECDS], [http://snd.gu.se/ SND], [http://www.bioimaging.se/swedish_bioimaging_network/Welcome.html Bioimage], [http://www.bils.se/ BILS], [http://www.uppnex.uu.se/ UPPNEX],[http://wlcg.web.cern.ch/ WLCG], [http://www.nrm.se/ Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet]. If any of these cover your research area, first read their information on applying for SweStore storage.
== UPPNEX ==
If you are a member of an UPPNEX project on UPPMAX, an iRODS service is already available and configured for you, please see http://www.uppmax.uu.se/faq/how-to-move-files-to-swestore-using-irods for more information on how to use it.

Unless you are instructed otherwise, submit an application to SweStore as outlined below.
= Application instructions =
Send an email to [mailto:support@swestore.se support@swestore.se]
Please include the following information in the application:<br>
* Whether you want the regular/production SweStore storage (based on dCache) or the new iRODS based storage (currently in pre-production pilot phase).
** If you apply for iRODS-storage: please provide a shipping address to where your yubikey should be sent.
* Name of the principal investigator (PI), including email address.
* Purpose for the storage: A short description of the project and type of data.
* Required storage capacity: Preferably a maximum size, but if this is not currently determinable, please calculate a starting size and expansion by time period. '''NOTE''' that applications larger than 10TB takes longer to process.
* Suggested project name: This will be used as root directory name for your storage.
# '''NOTE''' that this name is long-lived and will persist. It is not coupled to the lifetime of SNIC compute time allocations.
# We recommend a project name not tied to a person.
# Additionally, we recommend that the name is not a common word or term easily confusable with other current or future research efforts.
# It is a good idea to select a name that's short and easy to type.
# The name is  limited to lower-case letters a-z, digits 0-9, hyphens - and underscores _.
