A highly specialized facility, the data center will host the most critical information technology services, equipment, infrastructure and operations in a centralized location for the University’s main campus and all remote locations.
As Waynesburg University continues to explore partnerships with local communities, foundations, institutions of learning and other national and international organizations, as well as develop long-term entrepreneurial engagements, the new data center offers the necessary, high-tech infrastructure required to build, maintain and expand the information technology resources required for such initiatives.
“In essence, the data center serves as the technical backbone upon which partnerships, engagements, economic development and outreach programs can be fully supported,” said William Dumire, Waynesburg University’s vice president for information technology and chief information officer.
The center will also maximize the University’s overall service and equipment organization, dramatically reducing downtime, expediting necessary repairs and enabling the University to rapidly deploy new services and equipment over time.
“The data center allows Waynesburg University to carry out all daily operational and educational activities that rely heavily on the various technological systems used throughout the University,” said Dumire.
Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
