Applications requiring their own physical Windows Server are housed and maintained by ITS. These servers are purchased by the client to ITS standards, and ITS will maintain the server. The server is located in a secure, climate-controlled and UPS-maintained facility. The security and maintenance patches are applied to the servers on a scheduled basis. Servers are monitored and backups are maintained. The client is responsible for ensuring the application on the server is patched, secure and updated.
