Data centers house our precious intellectual property
A major research university generates a huge amount of data, which is why Rutgers now has
7 geographically dispersed data centers
Together, they provide physical and virtual support for Rutgers’ academic, clinical, research, and administrative communities.
Virtual infrastructure provides tangible benefits
Faster provisioning and reductions in hardware and power consumption are just a few advantages of using virtual infrastructure from the Office of Information Technology (OIT), rather than purchasing and managing your own. The benefits of OIT’s server systems include:
- scale securely
- backup and restore capabilities
- network monitoring and security
- savings from economies of scale and reduced power consumption
malicious network attacks blocked
sensors monitoring the status of the power and cooling services across OIT-managed data centers, ensuring a reliable hosting environment for the University's critical compute, network and storage devices.
