Enterprise Server Hosting

Managed Server Hosting at our Operations Center (NOC) provides both physical and virtual managed server hosting for departmental technology services that require a high level of availability and security.

Through the Managed Server Hosting service, customers can expect the NOC to monitor the servers around the clock, perform all backup services, manage the upgrades to operating systems, and coordinate the resolution of hardware problems. The department's IT professionals retain support of application systems and databases.

The service has also been designed to meet the unique needs of researchers who require dedicated server resources for their research projects.
