Servers

isginf manages servers (both virtual and physical) for the services that we provide as well as servers of research groups for various purposes.

We only support two operating systems for dedicated server installations:

For compute servers we can also use the desktop Linux flavors.

Virtual or Physical Server

Virtual servers are sufficient for many purposes and have many advantages:

For virtual machines we use the virtual servers from ITS.

Physical servers are recommended when high I/O, special hardware like GPUs or a lot of CPU power or RAM is needed. Our hosting service is intended for hosting physical servers.

isginf offers support through the entire life cycle of a server:

  • planning and conception
  • purchase
  • placement in the server room
  • power and network connectivity
  • OS installation
