The Humanitarian Information Unit (HIU), drawing on all-source intelligence,
provides value added independent analysis of events to Department
policymakers, ensures that intelligence activities support foreign policy
and national security purposes; and serves as the focal point in the
Department for ensuring policy review of sensitive  counterintelligence and
law enforcement activities. HIU's primary mission is to harness intelligence
to serve U.S. diplomacy. The bureau also analyzes geographical and
international boundary issues. HIU would like to refresh aging servers in
their development network as well as utilize virtualization to improve
system utilization, increase system reliability and reduce administrative
overhead. These applications in the development network primarily consist of
imaging applications and web services that run on a Windows platform.
Internal users at HIU test applications in this network as well as share
imagery data with external customers and constituents via FTP
