The New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (NHVDL) has hosted their accounting system called VADDS, supplied by their vendor, ATC, on an out of date system in the UNH Research Computing Data Center located in Morse Hall for six plus years. Microsoft had recently announced that direct support for the both the hardware and software would cease in June 2015. Of the replacement options considered, the one that looked to provide the most benefit for the NHVDL operations from a cost and performance stand point was creating a new virtual server environment hosted by UNH IT Services in the central UNH Data Center at One Leavitt Lane. My role as project manager derived from my position as senior IT staff person in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, home organization for the NHVDL.
