Hosted Virtual Servers

IITS offers a flexible virtualized server platform suitable for all applications, from sand-box and development environments all the way up to servers for business critical applications.  The physical server hosts reside in a cluster with failover capability across two physically secure data centres located on premise at UTSC.


Nextcloud is a next-generation Enterprise file synchronization and sharing service, similar to products such as DropBox and  All data is stored within UTSC's two data centres, and meets most Provincial and Federal compliance requirements.  Please contact the IITS Helpdesk to see whether your data can be hosted on this service.
