Service Description

Server hosting, server support and server administration services are available in The University Technology and Data Center (UTDC). We offer hosting in a Tier 2+ Data Center providing redundant power, cooling, and networking.


Services Offered

You may choose between rack space only or fully managed hardware and operating system. Server hosting is physically "housing" a server in the UTDC. Server support includes server procurement, server installation and storage solutions. Server administration includes security patching, maintenance, monitoring and backup and recovery services. The UTDC supports Windows and Linux environments and, if needed, application, Web and database support may also be purchased.

Limitations for rack space only:

* Hardware must fit standard rack dimensions - no tower style servers

Limitations for fully managed:

* Non-standard hardware, operating system or supported packages

* Non-standard or undocumented devices or databases

Support options include hardware assembly, racking, operating system installation, backing up, patching, maintenance and monitoring.



All departments and active university employees are eligible.
