ITSS: DATA CENTER NETWORKING
In July 2008, ITSS moved campus servers into the new data center in Kirby Plaza.  During the summer of 2009, ITSS improved the networking for the data center so that networking is the fastest in the University of Minnesota system. The network backbone to and from the data center runs at 20 gigabits per second. Each server in the data center connects to the backbone at 10 gigabits per second.  With the growth in virtual servers and overall data storage, this new infrastructure provides faster speeds and greater operational continuity.

NEW INSTRUCTOR PODIUMS
ITSS has completed a multi-year project to install an instructor podium with a control panel in all general-purpose classrooms and full-access computer teaching labs on campus.  The control panels make it easy for instructors to connect a laptop to the projector, sound system, and other technology devices in the classroom or lab.  All classrooms and labs are configured in a consistent way, designed to make use as easy as possible for instructors.  The next step will be to connect the control panels back to a central server, which will be used to monitor the technology devices and determine when a device needs repair or maintenance.
