| No Comments

The ITSS Systems Team ensures access to computing resources for the UMD campus community.

The team provides an accessible and standardized set of system services by utilizing open-architecture and highly-integrated server platforms. They support distributed databases, high-speed computing, distributed printing, and other large-scale services with high-speed access by using a variety of compute servers. They balance security and access to these systems for the UMD campus community.

From January 1 through July 31, 2013, the ITSS Systems Team:

  • managed a virtual server infrastructure with 10 host servers and 198 virtual servers
  • supported three storage area networks (SANs) that provide up to 453 terabytes of data storage
  • managed 70 physical servers, a number that continues to decrease as we virtualize more servers
  • provided 598 print queues and 996 Active Directory groups
