This session highlights the partnership between Clemson University and the energy services team from Duke Energy who were tasked with finding a creative way to provide additional electrical and mechanical systems for Clemson’s data center. Ultimately, Clemson has been able to invest in state-of-the-art servers and data storage systems to replace their old, legacy equipment. The partnership resulted in additional power supply for the University’s computer room and provisions for future expansions, helping Clemson achieve a ranking of 108 in the top 500 supercomputing sites in the world.

Learning Objectives:
1. Explain how to create a roadmap for replacing legacy equipment
2. Identify the changes and areas of growth that have taken place at Clemson University
3. Gain insight into how to modernize an existing data center
