    Using the phrase “academic unit” is actually more limiting in my opinion.  There are many “administrative units” and “student organizations” that use this service as well. An alternative phrase that can encompass the different campus groups might be more appropriate.

    I think a definition of terms should appear at the top of the document that would define such phrases used throughout the SLA document. For example, “User” could be interpreted as the User of the service or the visitor to a website. It is sort of defined in the General Overview so that may not be the best example.

    The phrasing of the second bullet in 3.2 seems misleading to me:

    “<span style=”line-height: 1.5;”>Track websites’ and visitors’ activity and provide Users with access to this data;”</span>

    I assume what you are saying here is the IT will maintain web server access logs.  Tracking visitor’s activity could mean something much more “NSA” to some reading it.

    My assumption based both on discussions and this SLA is that the goal is to move all sites currently hosted on IT’s departmental web servers to the cPanel servers.  My question is related to the 256mb space limit provided, somewhat mirroring Sharon’s comments above.

    1.  Has an audit been conducted looking at the size/quota of websites currently hosted on the Departmental web servers?  I know of and work with many departments that have quotas well over the 256 amount.  I would be curious to know the ranges and averages (mean , median and mode).

    2.  The idea of cPanel is great in terms of easily managing multiple sites under a single account.  For example, we currently host 30+ sites in a single NetID account.  That account has a significant quota.  I feel the limiting of disk space per account will encourage users to simply create a new NetID when space is an issue and they have multiple sites.  This creates more NetID and cPanels account that need to be managed on the IT side of things. However, I would prefer to manage everything in one account.
