File Transfer Service - Service Level Agreement
Objectives And Scope
File Transfer Service provides WCMC faculty, staff and students a secure and convenient web-based solution for transferring large files that exceed the email attachment limits to recipients within the institution. It also replaces the need for complicated FTP transfers or overnight couriers to people outside the institution.
File Transfer Service includes ability to send up to 2GB files.
File Transfer Service is expected to be available outside a two-hour weekly maintenance window. Often, maintenance does not affect availability, but if it might, there will be advance notice.
ITS cannot guarantee service levels when faced with circumstances beyond our control. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Natural or man-made disasters
- Electrical or network outages or disruptions
- Equipment failure unrelated to abuse or neglect
- Attacks on the WCMC network
