Service description

The Server administration service offers server space and server administration for the units’ own applications. The servers are mainly existing servers and web hotels of the IT Center, but also customised solutions are possible. By default, Linux and Windows-based virtual servers are used for customised solutions. In some cases, also the acquisition of separate physical servers is possible.

The basic service includes initial consultation (maximum 1 person-day), hardware capacity, administration of the server’s operating system as well as the server capacity monitoring and statistics. The service also includes monitoring of information security and investigating information security deviations and support for issues with the applications. The volume of network traffic is not restricted.

If necessary, the service can be expanded to cover, for example, technical administrator duties, more extensive technical consultation, extended technical support in case of malfunctions and server system configuration. Additional services are always agreed on a case-by-case basis.
