Dear Matthew Smith,

Sorry that wasn't clear: what it was meant to be getting at was *if* the council has IT systems/hardware hosted on sites ti doesn't physically control (eg a web hosting company) then I would like indicated for each device wheher it is one hosted/housed in the council's own buildings, or whether it is one homed elsewhere.

Obviously if either all computer servers/workstations are hosted by the council's IT then this isn't a relevant question.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Manning

Dear Matthew Smith ,

Apologies, I was sure I'd already replied this, but apparently not!

What I'm getting at here is that the Counil may or may not host all it's own IT systems ( I don't know), and may have some hosted by external hosting companies.

I would like the number of physical/virtual servers broken down between these two categories.

Obviously, if the council hosts all it's own services then this isn't relevant.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Manning
