Data center tour
OIT is part of the campus community, although since we are so far from the main campus it may not feel like it sometimes. So it's always great when OIT can participate in campus activities. Last week, OIT played host to a data center tour for a Carlson School class. Professor Naumann arranged with Joe Z, Jac, and Patton to bring his class into WBOB to demonstrate how OIT manages servers and data for the University of Minnesota. He sent his thanks to Joe, which I hope is ok to post here:
This is to let you and your staff know how valuable the tour and accompanying Q&A sessions were for my students. One of them -- who operates his own small business web design and hosting business -- commented to me that the tour really made infrastructure a reality to him. Jac and Patton were especially helpful, patiently responding to all the students' questions.
