The Systems and Operations group installs and maintains all centralized servers within the 4 campus locations. The environment currently includes Oracle Sparc, Dell, and Cisco UCS Servers. There are approximately 120 servers within all 4 campus locations. The group has been working on deploying VMWare virtualization. This technology has allowed us to achieve 20 to 1 ratio of servers to physical hardware. The operations group is currently involved in High Availability and Disaster Recovery projects. Providing uninterrupted service to the user community is our goal.
Our responsibilities include remediation of server and application
software, performing daily backups, 24x7 monitoring of servers and
applications, securing the Data Center, account provisioning, hosting
and managing Email systems. We secure and manage storage needs for
the user community. We assist other areas with technical
support and ongoing projects.
