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.
