RE:hosting EZproxy

Hi Stephen-


You may already know this, but OCLC offers hosted EZProxy:


It sounds like you would only want to use the hosted version during specific times, though, rather than full time …so I am not sure that this is the answer for you. As I understand it, OCLC’s hosted service is meant to run full-time …but you may want to talk to them and find out if it could be “flipped on” as needed.


Best regards,

We are potentially looking for some redundancy is our systems for times that there are server and network outages on campus.


Could you recommend a hosting company that can handle a EZProxy install?




Thank  you.
