Data Center & Hosting

The ITS Data Center provides facilities with high speed networking, secure firewall, electrical power, uninterruptible power supply, climate control, computer racks, system monitoring, remote console, and backup/recovery.

ITS Data Center Operations oversees these facilities, governing processes and equipment that maintain a secure facility with stable environmental conditions. From these facilities ITS provides a number of services for the RIT community:


Production Control and Enterprise Scheduling Services


ITS offers services to manage the submission, scheduling, execution, and output distribution of mainframe production and other ITS managed applications and platforms within the enterprise distributed environment. 

Data Center Co-Location Services


ITS provides data center space, network, redundant power and cooling to co-location customers for mission critical and non-critical systems.


Hosting Services

ITS provides server hosting and administration services for virtual, UNIX, and Windows platforms.

Production Control and Enterprise Job Scheduling Services

UC4 Job Scheduling Service


The UC4 scheduling service enables ITS to control batch jobs across managed applications so they run at the right time, in the proper order of execution (including parallel and sequential processing) with monitoring services to ensure jobs terminate normally and provide problem management with error reports for those that do not.



ITS provides web hosting for official and personal sites. ITS has recently created two new web environments one for official sites and another for personal sites. The change to having seperate servers for official RIT web sites and personal websites stemmed from security and performance issues.
