The Big 3
The Big 3 is a programme of work to improve our network, enhance our hosting environment and boost our storage capabilities.
It is essential to ensure that we have IT foundations that are robust and allow us to grow. New technologies will provide further stability, helping to future-proof our IT systems and provide the very best IT experience for our staff and students.
Improving our network
We want our staff and students to have a reliable, resilient network that provides them with high-speed broadband whenever they need it. To do this, we have laid fibre-optic cable throughout the city to ensure all of our University buildings are part of this strong network.
We're in the process of moving all buildings across to the new network. Check our map to see if your building has moved onto the new network.
Enhancing our hosting environment
We will provide a hosting platform that will be scalable and more resilient. Using the latest generation hosting technology, we will ensure ongoing maintenance and upgrades without the need for unplanned business-disrupting outages.
We will be gradually moving applications over to the new hosting environment and will be in touch with Departments and Colleges to ensure this happens at the most convenient time. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Boosting our storage capabilities
We know our students, staff and researchers need storage. You need to be able to securely store your data, have plenty of space allocated for it, and be able to quickly retrieve it.
Our new storage options will achieve this. We'll be increasing storage for all users, and for the academic and research community, we will have a storage provisioning tool which will enable you to access more storage for your Personal and Shared Research Projects.
For further information on the storage options available, read the Service Catalogue Storage pages. Please note, these pages will be updated with more details as The Big 3 project progresses.
