Web and Server-based Services: Enhanced Global Services
Course web space
Space on Divisional web servers for course web sites is available for all faculty. This is typically used when ITS-provided space is insufficient for one of several reasons. Such reasons might include the need for access to a specific application, streaming space, disk space in excess of ITS quotas, or the need for a course to persist over several quarters. Such space is also available for special student projects.
Project web hosting & virtual hosts
Arts IT staff host websites in support of ongoing projects, and will arrange for and host virtual hosts for instructional or research use. An example from Theater Arts is http://telematica.ucsc.edu/ —part of a course in distance dance over Internet 2. As another example, the student film magazine Eyecandy also maintains a virtual host site at http://eyecandy.ucsc.edu/.
Arts Computing provides centralized, secure, backed-up shared-file space for courses, individuals and groups.
Bulletin-board / Database Services
Arts IT servers host several instances of web-based bulletin boards, usually using phpbb, with MySQL database back-ends, to support classes and projects.
In addition to administering divisional and departmental servers (file, web, software, backup, streaming media, database), Arts IT also provides system administration of faculty machines used for instruction, upon request. System administration for research machines is the responsibility of the individual faculty member.
