Current Service Agreement Customers with Physical Hardware in the Machine Room

Effective January 2013, for physical hardware (legacy) machines in the server farm, a flat fee of $100 per month for System Administration services will be included in your monthly fee. This is in addition to the current storage, server farm, and TSM backup fees. If you're unsure what your monthly fee is, send an email to server-farm-fac@cornell.edu.

Note for CIT Internal Customers: The CIT Managed Server service holds the capital budget and plans replacement servers for internal CIT projects except for the two cases listed below. Internal customers are expected to be fiscally responsible, helping to use budget dollars wisely. If future growth is planned within an existing project, growth projections are needed at budget time. Exceptions: Designated (pay-for) services and new projects with a separate budget will need to budget for server expenses. They will be charged as outlined above.
