Data Center Updates

Friday, July 12, 2019


The ITSS Enterprise System team has officially begun the infrastructure hardware refresh.This consists of 3 major projects: migrating to the new hyper converged infrastructure for the virtual environment; updating the hardware within the file storage service; and updating the hardware in the data protection environment.

In addition to these improvements for our data centers, there are concerns about HVAC and electrical capacity in the GAB data center –which was built in 1982. In order to better understand the scope of issues with the GAB data center, there has been an ongoing assessment through Campos.

The goal of the assessment is to learn more about the current state of the GAB and DP data centers, as well as to recommend necessary improvements to the data centers. These three initiatives will enhance the UNT System’s ability to be a leader in technological innovation and cloud services.
