- Server hosting
- Through IT-hosted server virtualization, University departments can realize greater efficiencies and economies of scale by migrating stand-alone servers spread throughout campus to virtualized servers in the Chapel Street Computing Center.
Server virtualization is a "green" technology because many virtual servers run in one physical box. Not only does this technology use less energy, it has the added benefits of taking up less space, and costs less to buy than individual physical servers.
Virtual servers can easily be custom-configured with anywhere from 2–8 CPUs, 1–8 GB memory, and the choice of one of several popular operating systems.
University departments with inefficient, stand-alone servers in closets or classrooms—each with its own power and cooling —may want to consider virtualizing their old servers.
