SCS hosts application software and websites for participating NSHE institutions and the NSHE System Administration. This service provides a reliable, monitored, and secure alternative for institutions that may otherwise need to implement their own computing infrastructure and operations staffing solutions. Some hosted applications are used System-wide and others are used by a particular group or institution. Examples of hosted applications include: Customer Information System (CIS), Consensus HR Search, iLeave, and Pentana auditing software.
Examples of websites hosted include The Walker Basin Project website, the System-wide Online Gerontology Certificate Program website, the Redfield UNR/TMCC collaborative campus website, the iNtegrate Project website, GBC website, and various websites for WNC.
In addition to maintaining and monitoring the infrastructure and operating software on UNIX, Linux, and Windows server platforms, standard hosting includes regularly scheduled backups and offsite tape storage as well as server monitoring and a customer alert process.
Hosting Services are managed by the SCS Manager of Client Services, who is responsible for overseeing any service level agreements, providing service overviews, and monitoring service request and incident response reports.
