The Gloucester County Institute of Technology, Sewell, N.J., recently embarked on a $500,000 technology infrastructure upgrade. As part of this massive initiative, the school called in integrator Rick Tashman of Syscom Technologies, Blue Bell, Pa., to help design, deploy and service a new data center optimizing the latest virtualization, consolidation, power, cooling and monitoring technologies. Syscom brought in its vendor partners featuring APC and its Hot Aisle Containment System with its scalable, modular design. The data center phase of the project is valued at approximately $200,000 and took just 3 days to build, once the mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and everyone else involved in the project agreed on the implementation.
