UFIT manages all the elements of purchasing and maintaining hardware resources and overall administration of servers. Your file server will live in UF's private file server cloud which may include NAS appliance failover across multiple physical locations to prevent downtime due to hardware failure or maintenance. UFIT provides all compute and network hardware and infrastructure for the file server appliance. UFIT provisions your file space and works with your IT staff to assign administrative privileges and permit access via network ACLs and file share permissions. You will assign one or more of your IT team to fulfill the role of file share administrator. This role will manage snapshot restores, file-system security privileges, drive mappings, and other client-side configurations for users. If users define snapshots for the share, they can perform file-level restores via Windows Previous Versions or Linux equivalent functionality. Should you require longer-term data protection or independent data backups, UFIT staff can assist you in configuring and maintaining a TSM backup service.

Serving, sharing, and storing files was probably the very reason many small and midsize companies built out their intranet infrastructure in the first place, and may still be the only reason that many companies have a server in their office or are renting server space. And as the workforce became more mobile, these servers took on the additional duties of sharing your internal files with employees on the road or working from home, even though they may not have always been designed for those functions. Cloud hosting, on the other hand, was born from a networked world with sharing, collaboration, and mobility being key considerations from the very beginning. Despite only being a relatively recent technological innovation, cloud computing has leveraged these strengths to quickly start eating away at the share of file hosting and file sharing duties of traditional server setups.
