The IS&T Backstory
IS&T & the TJU Data Center Move

Winged Bull

In a novel approach that addressed an acute need for a higher level of IT systems and services, reliability and availability, IS&T chose the road less traveled by its peers in the higher education community because of the sheer magnitude of involved cost. 

The result?   TJU’s 100% outsourced Tier IV data center and disaster recovery infrastructure linked in real time data synchronization, with automatic failover.  It was designed, developed, and delivered in 18 months by IS&T, on time, in-house, and under budget. In addition, it has significantly enhanced data center security.

Downtime was virtually nonexistent during the migration because IS&T synchronized the systems and data to the real site before the move.
