The Storage Infrastructure group manages and supports UKIT’s Storage Area Network [SAN] disk storage and Tivoli Storage Management [TSM] based tape backup system.
TSM is a system of hardware and software that utilizes the UK data network to automatically perform daily backups of servers and workstations across the University enterprise. Data that is backed up resides on tape and a copy is also sent offsite to allow for Disaster Recovery. More information on this service can be found at https://www.uky.edu/ukit/content/tsm-backup-introduction
The storage networking team is responsible for provisioning and monitoring networked storage for enterprise servers in the Data Center. The multi-protocol system provides storage connectivity via CIFS, NFS, FCP, iSCSI, and FCoE. Systems that depend on the storage networks include SAP, myUK, VM, Blackboard, Citrix Desktop, Lync, and Kaltura.
