This was a ten month, large-scale, complex and high risk project to upgrade the live primary data centre at the University of Aberdeen. The goal was to turn an aged data centre into a state of the art shared data centre for all tertiary educational establishments in the North East of Scotland and spearhead a shared-service approach. Tasks included major construction work, innovative technology deployment and relocation of all network/server kit whilst all business operations were kept running.
In achieving this goal, the University has delivered individual and sectorial savings through the creation of a highly carbon-efficient facility. There has also been a significant improvement in its services to staff and students through the improved facilities – green can be the right choice on all levels!
Team skills, pride and inter-institutional trust have been significantly developed and the NESSDC project forms a basis from which other shared initiatives will grow.
