Out of Scope Services

System Administration 

Maintenance and operation of the virtual server OS and any installed applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. 


Information Solutions and Services is responsible for the availability of underlying physical infrastructure on which the virtual server and storage systems are resident, however, Information Solutions and Services is not responsible for the integrity, availability and accessibility of server application or data resident on customer supported virtual server and associated storage. Information Solutions and Services is not responsible for operating system or anti-virus updates and patches.


Internal databases maybe installed at any time by the customer according to application requirements, but this intention needs to be specified during setup so that server resources are allocated correctly. Application access to external databases (databases not embedded with Virtual Server) is not supported at this time.
