WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO:

Physics Computing Services is a small team of engineers whose main focus is providing and maintaining the servers and
services associated with the physics.harvard.edu domain including e-mail, online apps, lab and departmental websites
and file storage services. 

ADDITIONAL
We provide to all holders of a valid Physics account e-mail, web hosting, online storage, remote login and other services. Additionally, we provide web hosting for lab/group sites, internal custom web applications and specialized software support for staff and the chair's office.
We also provide Virtual Desktop Infrastructure for terminals and sign-on services for the 1st and 2nd year graduate students and common-use terminals and printers in the Physics Research Library. General computing for staff, faculty and others is provided by FAS-IT/HUIT.
While Physics Computing Services does seem to duplicate some services provided by the university, the sciences often have special requirements and needs that go beyond the standard model. A need for more capacity, performance, custom applications and/or flexibility in these services, along with a need to offer unique support to our G1 and G2 population, has been identified and it is our mission to fill that gap. This is most evident in our larger file and email storage offerings, web services and our networked home directories and terminals.
Our mission is not to replace FAS/HUIT, but to enhance or expand services that increase the efficiency and running of the department as well as providing for Physics's unique needs.
