AITS operates two enterprise quality data centers serving the University.  Production services in Chicago are located at Roosevelt Road Building (RRB) as well as business continuity, development, test and QA services in Urbana at Henry Administration Building (HAB).   Within the data centers, there are 964 virtual and/or physical servers attached to over 285TB of configured storage.  Overall backups total beyond 1 Petabyte of storage. 

AITS provides a set of standard services for data center co-location as well as full services for managing server environments. Standard services are provided by AITS and available at no additional cost to eligible units of the University of Illinois. Other fully-hosted and managed services are offered for a fee. AITS Computer Operations (AITS COE) is the primary point of contact for all AITS tenants. Operations staff manage each of the shared data center locations.
