Data Center

The Data Center is not something most students or faculty get the chance to see. The Data Center is a hub that secures institutional and departmental servers. The servers are the physical presence of the network (Ex: Wireless on campus). Currently, the Data Center hosts 185 servers and 80 virtual servers in the basement of the HCS. These servers consist of web servers, database servers, SQL, and Exchange. The entire network is supported from this one basement room. The Data Center has achieved tier-three status based on their efforts to make a safe and quality center.
