Independant Domain is an alternative to using BYU's Managed Domain service. It allows system administrators to manage their own servers for those that have needs outside of standard Managed Domain servers.
In a managed domain, server OS patches, updates, configurations etc. are standardized by the Platform team. In the Independent Domain, individual server administrators are responsible for patching, updating, configuring the server OS etc. to meet the needs of their applications. However, the platform team is available to consult with system adminstrators in keeping these servers stable and secure.
Currently, the Independent Domain is in the process of being built and servers are being added during fall 2013 through spring 2014. At some point in mid 2014, Independent Domain will be fully fleshed out and offered as a campus wide service for any group that manages their own servers but would like access to the Platform team and their expertise.
Currently, this service is only being offered to OIT system administrators and specific owners of existing virtual private servers. If you would like help managing your independent server, contact John Payne to discuss your specific needs and how his team can help you manage your server.
No pricing has been determined yet. When this is offered publicly in 2014 a pricing model will be put in place.
