Server Virtualization



The Office of Information Technology provides infrastructure to host servers, storage, and services in a virtual server environment. The virtual server environment consists of a Server Operating System deployed on industry leading Servers, Storage Area Network, and Ethernet Fabric technologies. Servers are configured in a Highly Available Cluster attached to the SAN and Ethernet Fabric via dual path fiber switch gear with full redundancy. All servers in this environment are automatically configured to conform to UTSA’s security and configuration compliance requirements as well as full backups with a two week retention.

The preferred operating system for these environments is the latest Microsoft Operating System however OIT can also support various versions of RedHat Enterprise Linux with the same levels of compliance and data retention as the Windows Servers. Costs vary based on the role of the servers and will be billed annually based on need.

This service is intended for departments and colleges at UTSA in the support of business and academic success. If a standard offering does not meet your requirements, we offer consulting services to aid in the design of a solution that meets your needs and integrates well into a shared environment. We are here to help you before, during, and after deployment.
