Server Hosting Policies

Requirements to Host a Server in the Data Center:

ALL Servers
  • Must be rack mountable.
  • Must be standard supportable hardware.
  • ALL hosted servers will be subject to Medical School security requirements and HIPAA regulations.
  • ALL hosted servers must undergo a Security Assessment conducted by our security and data center teams
Basic Hosting
  • Hosted-only systems are managed by the customers and as such, may include any hardware that the customer can support.
  • If the customer supplies a rack, the customer must also provide a UPS and some method of getting to the console, such as a kvm; there will be a per-rack charge.
Hosting with System Administration
  • Managed servers MUST have a valid warranty; upon expiration, there will be an automatic change in status (and accompanying rates) to hosting with system administration—unless negotiated while renewing the warranty.
  • Servers must have redundant power supplies.
  • Servers preferred to be Dell Power Edge servers (there may be additional charges for non-standard hardware)
  • All user accounts must be sunetid accounts.
