  • The associated operating systems installed on these physical servers, including hypervisors such as ESXi or various server operating systems such as Windows Server, Redhat, or Centos.
  • Virtual servers, and virtual desktops installed on hypervisors.
  • Any infrastructure required as part of the AppsAnywhere service
  • Backing up of all of these servers, and providing disaster recovery options where required.

Additional responsibilities for the team include a Nagios based monitoring service, and all associated support for the backup infrastructure required to allow servers and storage to be backed up in line with the universities policy. The team also offer advice on consultation on requirements and any other queries relating the area.
