A New Beginning
At UC Riverside, our data powers the systems, software, and applications that support the teaching, learning, and research that are core to our University's mission.
As technology continues to advance at an exponential rate, there are challenges to overcome—in some cases fundamentally changing how we manage and protect the data that supports our institution. As such, UCR Information Technology Solutions is proud to introduce Project Genesis.
Better data management to support teaching, learning, and research at UC Riverside.
Reliability: Clean rooms, redundant cooling, fire suppression, electrical infrastructure, and redundant communication systems with around-the-clock monitoring to ensure a constant connection.
Speed: Cost-effective and fast connections directly to multiple internet service providers to ensure top performance and redundancy in the event of a connection interruption or overload.
Cost and Space Savings: Investing in equipment and measures to upgrade and implement similar systems in-house requires a significant amount of capex and space; which could be potentially repurposed for other needs.
Scalability: Flexibility to scale our data operations up or down easily, while only paying for power, space, and support as needed.
Security: Special design features such as key card readers, locked cages and 24-7 surveillance to ensure that systems are protected from any issues that may compromise equipment and information security.
Redundancy: At least one independent backup component (N+1) and often more, to key infrastructure at all times, such as utility power, cooling, bandwidth and, networking.
