Servers

While most of our equipment is standardized, MedIT can build and configure the appropriate server to suit your needs. We also provide virtual servers to improve the stability, manageability, and affordability of computing and storage.

Data Centre Hosting

MedIT provides data centre hosting services to manage and monitor your network, server and storage gear. Our facilities provide physical security, cooling, back-up power and high-speed connectivity to UBC networks.

Videoconference Equipment

​All departments using academic space or university funds, including research accounts, for videoconferencing facilities must follow the procedures outlined in the listed documents. While departmental users are entitled to acquire equipment independently, we strongly suggest that they follow the procedures outlined.

There are multiple factors that need to be addressed to ensure optimal presentation quality, as well as issues such as infrastructure implications and ongoing budget requirements to be considered. The documents below outline the steps that should be taken and the groups that should be contacted to maximize functionality and facility compatibility, and minimize unexpected costs and design requirements.
