We are setting up Dataverse in a university environment. In the business plan for the project, we are trying to figure out what kind of growth in the userbase to expect. Thereby being able to calculate the required storage, support etc.
data available somewhere? Are any of you willing to share your growth in users
contra storage and datasets. It would also be very helpful to match storage
requirements in relation to what branch of science a researcher is coming from.
I have a clear idea, that health and science produce more data measured in
storage than for example law.
I have looked up the Harvard Dataverse in re3data, it lists dataverses datasets and files. But I would love to know userbase and storage.
Thanks in advance.

You might find https://dataverse.org/metrics, generated by the Dataverse-metrics app and the Metrics API it uses (there are links to those at the bottom of the metrics page I just listed.) useful. That page and current API don’t give you total file size, but they retrieve counts of Dataverse collections, datasets, and datafiles, per Dataverse instance, with the metrics page aggregating those counts from the list of Dataverse instances at the bottom of the page.
The other thing I’d mention is that I think everyone would agree that stats like file size, files per dataset, the distribution of mimetypes, etc. are all highly correlated to the disciplines your Dataverse instance will support, and can be influenced by local policies such as the configured file size limit.

Sorry - there was some work on that page to get updated stats and a typo broke the display. It should be back now, hopefully updating in the background.
