SP staff collaborate with personnel from the University of Toronto Libraries' Information Technology Services (ITS) department to evaluate information about hardware performance. Evaluations vary in formality according to the circumstances. The most extensive assessments take place whenever large components, such as the repository's servers or storage array network, require replacement. When necessary, systems administrators at SP and ITS consult vendors for additional information and advice. Staff
