Web Server Cloud

Description

The HKU Web Server Cloud (Cloud) was introduced in June 2009 to support departmental web sites, running on central ITS Cloud platform.  When virtual web server fails, the VM will be restarted on another physical server automatically.  Each department has 50GB virtual disk space quota. If a department is hosting multiple websites, she is required to coordinate the allocated resources for shared use among all the web services in her department including the approval of additional accounts applied on the virtual server.  With the introduction of WIX and WordPress Content Management Systems (CMS), users have the choices of hosting the website on web server cloud platform or the other CMS.

Web servers created on or after Nov 2020
