Cloud Services & IT Infrastructure
To promote an environment for effortless collaboration within FIU’s units, the Division of IT offers various cloud services for faculty and staff, including Office 365, OneDrive, CrashPlan, SharePoint, and Enterprise File servers.
The Division of IT Data Center is a robust and reliable provider of hosting services. It is outfitted with enterprise grade power distribution systems designed to run uninterrupted, even in the unlikely event of a total power outage.
- All systems are fed with conditioned Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) power that will provide a smooth transition to power provided by an on-site generator.
- The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system is redundant to ensure continuous operation should one module be out of operation as a result of equipment failure or scheduled maintenance.
- An advanced fire-suppression system is in place to prevent any fires from spreading in the unlikely event that one could start.
The data center is designed to function on a 24 hour, 7 day a week, 365 days per year schedule. To ensure security, a firewall is provided to prevent unauthorized access to restricted servers. The Data Center is equipped with a firewall intrusion protection system with 24/7 surveillance and physical access controls.
