The STK SL8500 Tape Silo contains up to 1500 tape cartridges that are used for various back ups. It is used for the mainframe as well as open systems.
UCIT protects the university’s most important information in our secure, environmentally controlled data center. Located in the Medical Services Building, our data center stores the university’s core computer systems along with the server racks of individual departments who rely on us to house their equipment.
So, what do we mean by secure?
These features make the location ideal for IT equipment.
UCIT offers the following data center services:
Virtual Hosting Services: We build the server image, install the operating system, configure network access and security, and provide Storage Area Network (SAN) storage and data backups. Click here for more information on virtual hosting services.
Managed Storage Services: We attach your dedicated server to our SAN – we will monitor, support and maintain all hardware and software supporting the SAN.
Enterprise Backup Services: We copy your active files and back them up twice (once on internal disk and then on to tapes, see picture above, which are moved daily from the data center by Iron Mountain to their offsite storage facility).
