IITS offers a variety of hosted services, such as server virtual machines (Windows Server, Debian, or Ubuntu), network data storage, and synchronization tools such as Nextcloud.
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 Sync.com. 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.
IITS offers a robust data storage service for research data, with security and control in mind. A storage solution can be provisioned to provide users with controlled access (via UTORid credentials) to network storage that meet your compliance requirements. Access to the data can be mapped to on-campus workstations and/or obtained through other protocols such as SFTP.
