KU IT maintains a data center for hosting physical and virtual servers.
Existing Departmental Servers:
KU campus unit and departments are encouraged to re-locate physical or virtual servers to the KU IT Data Center.
Hosted Server Management Services include:
- 24/7 system monitoring
- Controlled power and temperature environment
- Secure facility
- Daily backups
- Offsite storage and restoration services
- Problem management.
KU IT will work with individual customers to design a managed services agreement that meets their needs.
As part of the relocation process, KU IT Security Office will complete a thorough security review of the equipment and help resolve issues prior to relocation. Server administrators will be asked to complete facilities support documentation. In some cases a virtual machine may be a better option than moving a physical server.
