The RVMS provides resilient, self-administered Debian/RH based Linux and Windows Server Virtual Machines
Typical uses include:
- Web servers with a SQL database backend.
- Download sites for publicly accessible data (e.g., mounted from the RDS).
- Hosts which require fast, secure access to RDS
Research Virtual Machines (VMs) are not suited to CPU intensive work or for storing Highly Classified data.
VMs are hosted on a platform with hardware redundancy and failover, nightly backups, and are located in an IT Services datacentre in which hardware and power supply is monitored.
For a more comprehensive description of the service, what it can provide and FAQ’s visit the dedicated RVMS website.
The basic configuration of 1 core CPU, 4GB RAM and 30GB HD, Linux O/S would not incur a charge. A higher specification and/or Windows O/S would be chargeable at a negotiable rate dependent on project needs.
