Browser-based collaboration and document-management tool
UW SharePoint is a Web application platform that solves customer needs for team collaboration, business process improvement, and Web publishing. The current version of UW SharePoint is SharePoint 2010.
As a platform, UW SharePoint can be used in a number of ways to provide value to those using it. UW SharePoint can help:
Improve collaboration capability between individuals, teams, departments, and schools
Provide a robust document management, file sharing, and Web publishing platform that is well integrated with existing Microsoft Office applications
Improve business processes within departments, schools, and colleges through enhanced business intelligence, customized process workflows, electronic Web-based forms, and controlled records management
Reduce the number of emails, email attached documents, and printed materials shared between individuals and teams
Provide for an efficient and extensive UW enterprise search platform that can be finely tuned for security, and has the capability to include internal and external Web properties and individual user profiles
Support business critical digital-media processing, metadata management, data warehousing applications, and custom business process workflows with a minimum of custom code development
Site Collections are groups of sites that are provisioned to a department or group of departments. They have a 5 GB disk quota and are administered by at least one responsible individual who acts as a primary support contact for the collection's users. The quota for a Site Collection can be increased for an additional fee.
MySites are personal sites available to individual users (limited to staff, faculty, and special exception UW NetIDs). These have a 100 MB disk quota.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with maintenance windows on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Site Collections: New site collections incur a one-time $200 setup fee. The standard fee for ongoing service is $68.70 per month for a 5 GB site. Additional 5 GB storage blocks are available for $68.70 per 5 GB. A valid UW budget is required. Additional license fees may be required.
Hourly Consulting Rate: SharePoint experts are available for $91.71 per hour if any consulting beyond our standard support is desired.
MySites: There is no charge for MySites, which you can get without having a Site Collection.
There are no current service level agreements in effect relative to the UW SharePoint.
UW Information Technology will attempt to perform any needed regular maintenance on the SharePoint server on Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Emergency maintenance may be performed at any time. Important business functions such as collaboration, document management, search, Web publishing, file sharing, and custom business workflows developed in SharePoint may be impacted during maintenance periods.
There are failover capabilities on the Web front-end servers, and the SQL database runs on a clustered pair of servers. Standardized backup procedures used for UW Information Technology-managed SQL databases will be followed for SharePoint content.
After a disaster, critical business systems/processes may be impacted by a loss of SharePoint services. Disaster response processes and emergency communications or messaging systems should not rely upon SharePoint.
UW SharePoint has a distributed support model.
Tier 1 (End User questions): Individual site users will contact each SharePoint site's owners/administrators for end-user support and training in using the application.
Tier 2 (Site Owner questions): Site owners contact the UW Information Technology Service Center, where their questions will then be escalated as appropriate.
SharePoint site collection owners who have SharePoint 'how to', best practice, and other general questions also can email firstname.lastname@example.org. This list includes all UW SharePoint site owners/admins who are part of the UW SharePoint community.

UW Shared Web Hosting services are available from any Internet connections. Services are set up with a cluster server environment so that small system failures will not cause a service outage. The service is not designed for quick recovery from a major disaster. Occasional downtime is scheduled for periodic upgrade of servers.
Historically our service availability has been 99.9%. However, since the Web Publishing environment is shared, excessive use of the services by one or more users may degrade performance for others.
The basic service is included in the Technology Recharge Fee for faculty and staff and is funded by the Student Technology Fee for students.
A basic disk storage allocation of 1 GB is included for faculty, staff, and shared accounts. Students are provided 300 MB of storage.
Additional data storage for faculty and staff and shared accounts is available for a fee. To increase your storage limit, go to the Manage Your NetID Resources page at https://uwnetid.washington.edu/manage/?disk, where you can enter a budget number and set the amount. The rate is $.35 per GB per month.
UW Blogs Network is available at no additional cost.
URL Forwarding or URL Masking is $50 per URL per year.
UW Shared Web Hosting services are designed for continuous access with the exception of scheduled down times, hardware failure, and natural disasters. UW Information Technology responds to queries within 2 business days. Support is limited to ensuring that centrally installed functions and software are operating. Data for storage for students is fixed at 300 MB.
UW-IT provides documentation to help customers use the UW Shared Web Hosting services. Customers provide their own ready-to-publish pages, install them on the servers, and install and operate any custom Web sites. UW-IT customer support is limited to assisting with server operational problems and clarifying documentation. Consulting may be available for a fee.
<p>No charge for basic service. There may be charges if additional resources are requested.</p>
