    Web servers with a SQL database backend.
    Download sites for publicly accessible data (e.g., mounted from the RDS).
    Hosts which require fast, secure access to RDS
    Research Virtual Machines (VMs) are not suited to CPU intensive work or for storing Highly Classified data.

    VMs are hosted on a platform with hardware redundancy and failover, nightly backups, and are located in an IT Services datacentre in which hardware and power supply is monitored.
