Hosting services is the primary objective of any network/server in order to exploit the computing potential of the systems. Being an autonomous and complete in itself network, IIITA intranet hosts all kind of services inside INDEMICA. Mainly services are running on Open Source O/S platforms (LINUX) but depending on need any platform is/could be implemented. Various LINUX flavours (DEBIAN, REDHAT, SuSE, FADORA, UBUNTU etc.) have been installed and configured for certain specific service. INDEM poudly aclaims that these services have been implemented and maintained by purely in-house expertise and resources.

Every year services get updated with latest versions of operating system and the packages under execution.

These services attract more than millions of hits per month, which itself certify the usefulness and reliability of services hosted on IIITA LAN. Reliability of services is the key focus for INDEM and regourous efforts need to invest in order to maintain high expectations of users.
