Mission

IT-SER­VICES is a WU ser­vice center whose main tasks are the plan­ning, ac­quis­i­tion and op­er­a­tion of the uni­versity IT-in­fra­struc­ture at WU cam­pus.

Our aim is to sup­port all WU mem­bers in us­ing the IT-ser­vices of the WU and provide 24/7 safe and com­fort­able ac­cess to all data and ap­plic­a­tions which are im­port­ant for re­search­ing, teach­ing, study­ing and do­ing ad­min­is­trat­ive work.

Cer­ti­fic­a­tions

About 2% of the total en­ergy con­sump­tion world­wide is caused by IT Data Center. There­fore, im­prov­ing the ef­fi­ciency with which en­ergy is con­sumed is very im­port­ant to IT-SER­VICES.

IT-SER­VICES par­ti­cip­ated in an EU ini­ti­ated pro­gram on re­du­cing en­ergy con­sump­tion and had all WU’s Data Cen­ters care­fully in­spec­ted. The en­ergy con­sump­tion caused by servers, stor­age sys­tems and net­work com­pon­ents was checked as well as the en­ergy con­sump­tion of the in­fra­struc­ture com­pon­ents.

We are proud to an­nounce that WU was one out of two or­gan­iz­a­tions in Aus­tria that fully meets the re­quire­ments of the "Code of Con­duct for Ef­fi­ciency in Data Center" of the EU in terms of the en­ergy ef­fi­ciency.
