Database hosting

Computing Services Department (CSD) provides secure, resilient, managed databases on either clustered SQL servers or within a VMware server. Database hosting includes installation and on-going database server maintenance by CSD.

Microsoft SQL and MySQL

Microsoft SQL databases can either be hosted on a VMware server or on one of the SQL clusters. If the database is over 50GB then hosting on the SQL cluster would be the most suitable option provided it is supported by the software vendor and application.

All Microsoft licensing costs for SQL are included with the service.

MySQL databases can be hosted on a VMware server.

Costing of databases hosted in the SQL cluster is subject to requirements: contact the CSD Service Desk for support.
