Service: Enterprise Campus Data Center Services
Information Technology Services (ITS) manages and operates the two Tier 2 enterprise data centers whose physical security, device performance and network activity is monitored 24x7x365. Monitoring is performed using a combination of monitoring and intrusion prevention systems, located both in front of the data center network as well as at the edge of the campus network.
These centrally-managed facilities have the appropriate environmental conditions, networking, security, monitoring, data backup and disaster recovery capability to support operation of UNCG's enterprise services at 99.90% availability.
Locating server infrastructure in the proper environment provided by an enterprise class data center ensures that the equipment is operated correctly to achieve maximum useful life for the University’s investment.
