IT Service Centre hardware platforms

The Technical Operations Division is responsible for all of the IT Service Centre’s hardware platforms. These include Host, Unix, Linux, MS-Windows and storage platforms on the one hand, and networks and their services, firewalls and storage area networks on the other hand.

The systems are operated in two different locations and are monitored on a 24/7 basis. An on-call service is available in case problems arise.
