ITS provides virtual servers and storage for teaching and research purposes.

What ITS server hosting provides

  • Standardly, your virtual servers are hosted in the Dunedin ITS data centres and are accessible from all University of Otago campuses. They can also be run in satellite ITS data centre facilities in Christchurch and Wellington on request. Requests are reviewed by ITS data centre specialists to ensure the best possible solution.
  • Your servers are kept in a secure environment with clean power, generators, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), air conditioning, networking, monitoring, backups, and with seismic and fire risks mitigated.
  • ITS provides highly available virtualisation and storage environments for your servers that run across our data centres, with virtualisation failover, data replication, and disaster recovery software in place.
  • The ITS data centres are regularly audited and all supporting infrastructure is routinely tested and maintained.
