College Data Centers: Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde?

A college data center is the essence of a paradox: Perpetually short of operating funds, but expected to support high-performance, high-density computing applications. Our panel of university data center directors shares tips for finding funding for upgrades, making do when the funds don't come, managing supercomputer data centers and the challenges they bring.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand specific data center management challenges on college campuses
2. Discuss the various data center customers and constituents in a university setting
3. Review the consequences of underfunded data center initiatives
4. Share solutions to common challenges including funding, density and communicating with upper management
