Tenant Managed Services (TMS)

Tenant Managed Services (TMS) is the Statewide Data Center’s colocation service offering.  TMS allows customers the ability to choose which features are needed to best meet specific departmental needs, while reducing statewide data center floor space and greenhouse emissions.

Two models of co-location service are offered:



TMS Basic (formerly known as COEMS) provides secure space in a state-operated, Tier III equivalent data center, while still allowing customers to maintain full control over their computing environment. Tenants also provide and manage their own security components (e.g. Firewall, IPS, etc).



TMS Premium (formerly known as FDC) offers an additional layer of service.  In addition to providing secure space, it also provides a managed local area network (LAN) and storage area network (SAN). The Managed LAN includes Firewall and IPS; tenants manage their security context.

The TMS Security Standard discusses the requirements that must be adhered to for both physical facility access and data protection. The Data Classification Standard should be followed to ensure that the State Administrative Manual (SAM) section 5305.5 and the Statewide Information Management Manual (SIMM) section 5305-A are adhered to.

The table below is intended to provide clarity around roles and responsibilities between CDT and Tenants for each TMS Model.
