The Jeff IT Backstory
Jeff IT & 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, Jeff IT 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 Jeff IT, on time, in-house, and under budget. In addition, it has significantly enhanced data center security.

Downtime was virtually nonexistent during the migration because Jeff IT synchronized the systems and data to the real site before the move.
