Information Technology Services - Virtual Server Hosting Services
The University of Hawaii Information Technology Services(ITS) data center is located on the first floor of Keller Hall, on the University of Hawaii Manoa campus. ITS provides a number of options for hosting services in Keller data center. Many UH campus and departmental web pages are hosted for no cost using the Personal Home Page service, the dynamic departmental web hosting service, or the web content management systems (Drupal, WordPress).
For more complex server-based systems, the ITS Virtual Server Hosting Service is provided on a cost-recovery basis. It provides hardware and network infrastructure as well as access to the operating system for the development and deployment of complex applications.
With a standard virtual hosting agreement, cost and maintenance of the OS and other costs are the responsibility of the department. ITS can provide server management services based on our standard contract services described below.
