Use of central services, virtualization, and consolidation reduces the number of physical servers.
Support staff can dedicate more time to supporting their customers.
The Virtual Server Hosting service provides virtual servers to University departments and business units. The virtual servers are maintained and managed by Office of Information Technology (OIT) systems administrators. This includes maintaining and managing the infrastructure, operating system, storage, backups, security, and patching.
University departments and business units retain responsibility for application administration and customer support for their users.
OIT also offers physical server hosting for collegiate and administrative units if it is determined that virtual server hosting does not meet your application workload needs. The physical server is housed in OIT-run space in our secure data center.
This service offering is part of our Hosting Services.
