Private Cloud Hosting

Private Cloud Hosting container or vm server hosting replaces the need for a physical server while enabling the flexibility of private cloud computing. OIT Research Computing sets up a virtual machine with the memory, CPUs and disk space configuration requested, then installs the base operating system, configures the network, and provides basic user access to the system. Included with the service is virtual machine hypervisor configuration, OS management/patching, and data protection and recovery. This reduces the time needed for systems administration and the cost associated with server hosting. You are responsible for the installation, security and management of your applications running on the server.
