CTIS offers hosting strategies to help clients meet key business and research goals. CTIS has decades of experience providing IT infrastructure services to federal and commercial clients.  We are well-versed in the implementation and management of high-availability configurations such as database server clusters, network load-balancing web server farms, real application clusters, and real-time replication services. We design backup and recovery strategies to ensure appropriate recovery points and recovery times based on client requirements. Our experts implement small- to large-scale disaster recovery simulations, including contingency tests. We perform routing operations and scheduled maintenance activities for security patches, bug fixes, software enhancements, and change requests.

Our IT Service and Help Desks process operational tasks and our infrastructure offers an average of 12 years’ experience with such certifications as CISSP, CISM, CCNA, MCSE, OCP, and ITIL v3.  We are a Microsoft Certified Gold partner, a Cisco Registered partner, and an Oracle partner. CTIS uses a hybrid model encompassing both the NIST security framework and guidelines as well as the HHS-adopted National Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (NIACAP).
