TE9 - Applications Hosting

Provision of managed server infrastructure for hosting specialist, multi-user, application software.

Such applications are frequently proprietary but in some cases may consist of in-house applications and databases. Support for the application itself and end-users is normally performed by an external third-party company – usually the software vendor.

Service features include;

TE9.1 - Liaison with third-party suppliers to verify infrastructure requirements

TE9.2 - Verification that the application security configuration meets University IT standards and best practice

TE9.3 - Ensuring that the application’s data is securely backed

TE9.4 - Ensuring the underpinning server operating system is operational and secure
