ITF Work

If a serious disaster were to compromise several key computing facilities on campus it would take 3-4 weeks for UNI to have those systems back online. In discussions several years ago IT Administrative Information Systems was challenged to find a way of reducing that number to 2 – 3 days without more funding. We are now mid-way in implementing the plan to accomplish this, by moving some of UNI’s test systems to the ITF (Iowa Technology Facility) in Coralville.  Once our test systems are there, we will begin replicating production systems there so they can operate in a failover capacity.  This is a great example of how the Regents IT organizations are collaborating in effective ways.
