Various units within the College of Art and Design utilize shared file storage on CoAD-maintained servers. CoAD IT currently maintains the following servers used for this purpose:

  • desn-designsrv2.lsu.edu
  • desn-knox.lsu.edu

All content stored on these servers is backed-up daily using Tivoli Storage Manager.
