Pricing conditions for Geneva’s Higher Education Institutions

The Yareta Data Repository complies with the FAIR principles for research data management. It is therefore in line with the SNSF and Horizon 2020 requirements for the archiving and long-term preservation for research data.

We offer two billing options to archive your research data in the Yareta data repository. Choose the one that best suits your needs:

  • OPTION 1 – Annual billing by Terabyte: 100 CHF/TB/Year

  • OPTION 2 – Billing by data upload (Pay once forever): 2’000 CHF/Tb

If your data are derived or generated within the framework of a research project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, please choose option 2 "Pay once forever" which is the only option eligible by the SNSF.

Whichever option you choose, Yareta is free for data volumes under 50 GB. For volumes greater than 50 GB (Gigabytes), storage is charged in increments of 1 TB (Terabyte). Two copies of your data are automatically stored on the Uni Dufour and Biotech sites.

It is commonly accepted that the cost of storage is steadily decreasing. The tariff proposed under Option 2 has been calculated on the basis of a retention period of 20 years, which – thanks to the general decrease in costs – will be sufficient to ensure permanent retention without any additional costs of the data archives.
