Storage Administration

Storage Administration

Division of IT offers Storage Administration services for SAN and NAS appliances owned by departments.

The Storage Administration service provides:

  • Storage sizing and procurement consulting
  • Storage implementation
  • Storage network and software configuration
  • Volume and/or share administration
  • Firmware and software upgrades
  • 24x7x365 monitoring and on call support

Storage arrays must be located in a Division of IT data center.

Charges are assessed based on the complexity of the storage array.  Please contact for a price quote.

Note: In FY22 changes were made to the way some IT costs are distributed to the capus. We've added IT costs for some our services to the MU Allocation Model. As a result of the change, all expenses included in the FY22 MU allocation model are assigned to each entity based on their percentage of expenses to the total and then that amount is deducted from their annual General Revenue Allocation. For example, if the School of Music accounts for 10% of overall expenses, they will be assigned 10% of the IT expenses and the GRA allocation is reduced accordingly. This reduction is done BEFORE the allocation is transferred to the entity.

 **Please Note: Data Network monthly charges are included in the allocation model, but activation and installation charges still apply.

This service is available to all campuses and campus departments in the UM Enterprise.
