As agencies move towards less paper intensive processes (reducing physical storage costs) the need for electronic storage has increased significantly. ITD offers several levels of storage services, including automated backup services.
Tapeless backup (disk-based) or tape storage is provided for all disk storage services.
Replication creates a real-time copy of data in both the primary and secondary datacenters and significantly improves recovery time in the event of a disaster.
Storage associated with non-enterprise services may be acquired either on-demand or in dedicated increments.
ITD's online Work Management System (WMS) may be used to submit a "General Server" service request.
Basic disk storage service is for data stored on ITD's central disk storage devices that does not require high availability or high performance. Data replication options are not available. Typical usage includes non-critical, non-transactional data.
File Share disk storage service is data stored on ITD's central disk storage devices. It is reserved for specific non-transactional data. Typical usage includes File and Print data. Data replication options are available.
Premium disk storage is data stored on ITD's central disk storage devices that requires high performance or high availability. Data replication options are available. Typical usage includes databases and transactional data.
Tape backup storage is provided for all disk storage services.
Hosting is running and maintaining a computer system or application on someone's behalf; typically within a modern datacenter.
