Private Cloud Service (Server Virtualization)

A service of IET

Information and Educational Technology (IET) offers a Private Cloud Service hosted in a VMWare environment.

IET and other campus departments are rapidly running out of suitable physical space to house servers and are facing challenging maintenance, power, and cooling requirements for existing and expanding systems. Server Virtualization has become a mainstream solution to help address these issues providing a scalable, cost effective, efficiently managed virtualization environment for the campus.

This centrally-managed service provides economies of scale not available to departments deploying individual servers or their own virtualization solution. Server Virtualization also contributes to the campus’ efforts to reduce costs and represents a technology solution consistent with the campus aspirations to champion “green” computing solutions.
