What is hosting?
In addition to building databases, websites, and applications, DGIT’s Software Development Team offers hosting for each project engineered by the team. Our team has the expertise and bandwidth to host, support, and maintain your technology for years, so you can enjoy its full range of functionality without worrying about a thing.
DGIT provides hosting within the secure environments at the San Diego Super Computing Center and in the service cloud supplied by Amazon Web Services.
Why do I need hosting?
Your database, website, or application needs an online place to “live” to be functional and accessible; that’s what hosting provides. Because the internet is cluttered with countless third-party hosting sites, we offer our own hosting services to the UCLA community. We help you avoid the headaches of selecting a provider, ensuring your project finds a safe, secure, and reliable online home.
Our standard support cost for hosting is two hours per month at a rate of $86 an hour. The support includes backups and monitoring. Some large-scale systems might require additional storage that will increase costs slightly over time.
How are your hosting services unique?
We provide hosting services that directly align with researchers’ unique needs, including storing large amounts of sensitive and important data. Using our hosting capabilities ensures a streamlined process for your project, cutting out hours of time spent vetting third-party services.
