Systems & Data Infrastructure

College computing resources such as reporting systems, learning management systems, wireless network, and desktop computers all rely on an underlying physical (and virtual) infrastructure. This infrastructure is comprised of fiber optic and copper cable connecting all College buildings, aggregation points where network switches and other appliances facilitate network communications, and data centers where servers, both physical and virtual, provide network and application-level services. This technology fabric is rarely seen or considered, but all critical College services rely on it being available and fully operational day in and day out. The IT Department is responsible for maintaining this infrastructure and building capacity to support the increasing demands for bandwidth and services.
