OIT performs routine maintenance on servers and systems every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Many IT services may be offline intermittently during this time. Network access and computing resources availability (Banner, E-Learning, Exchange server, etc.) may also be affected. Since this is a low-usage period, fewer UA customers will be impacted. For questions, contact the IT Service Desk at (205) 348-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Internet2 ultra-high-speed infrastructure provides opportunities for the UA community to extend services to the public such as the creation of programs that deliver educational services to K-12 schools across Alabama or the utilization of NRENs that may serve traditionally deprived areas around the world. The burdens of delivering UA expertise and its battery of services for public benefit are easier with a robust network.
