Sites occupying 500MB's or more are requested to log a call with the IT Service Desk to discuss their hosting requirements. This is in order to facilitate individual requirements where possible and to plan for required resources in the future.
  • IT Services performs regular back-ups to facilitate a server restore in the event of a failure. Site administrators should maintain regular back-ups to facilitate individual page restores (in the event of accidental deletion, over-writing etc.) As per the previous term above, these back-ups should be maintained off the server.
