Managed Servers

Fully managed servers in a high-availability, state-of-the-art data center

The Managed Servers service provides fully managed virtual and physical machines in a high-availability, state-of-the-art data center. Servers are managed and backed up, and have full emergency power. CIT's Systems Administration team manages server farms in two raised-floor machine rooms in two buildings on campus.

Administration services are offered for campus customers and for internal CIT customers, and cover the cycle of server planning and administration:

  • installing servers in the Server Farm
  • installing operating systems
  • maintaining the servers and the base operating systems
  • configuring networking
  • configuring backups
  • configuring storage
  • userid creation
  • SFTP
  • decommissioning
  • equipment removal

Departments and application owners have full control over and responsibility for the applications that run on top of the operating system. Support for issues with applications is the responsibility of the application owner. Systems Administration will help application owners with integration, performance, tuning, and capacity planning.
