Service Description

Information Technology Services utilizes the VMWare ESX suite of products to support virtual infrastructure needs across the campus. The Systems team supports over 300 active virtual servers and nearly 1 Petabyte of active storage across multiple physical computing clusters. These systems support the learning, business, and research components of the University.

Information Technology Services uses IBM's Spectrum Protect (formerly TSM) product as its enterprise backup solution. The Systems group supports this suite of tools to ensure that critical University data is protected.

For graduating students there is a grace period of 6 months before their access is removed and the share is deleted. There is no longer the need to submit a UShare class request, but UShares for faculty are not created automatically. Faculty UShares can be created by request.
