Virtual Private Servers (VPS) allow departments and colleges to administer a virtualized private, leased server. Either Windows Server 2008 or Red Hat Linux operating systems are available.
Additional features include:
- Monitoring: OIT will monitor your VPS for network connection (ping) and basic web server function (static pages only). If OIT Operations notices a problem, they will restart the server to restore functionality and notify the system administrator.
- Backups: Upon request, data files may be backed up each night unless the file is open. The Operating System is NOT backed up. As such, a complete system restore is not available, only data files may be restored.
