Academic Colocation

Managing servers is complicated. The academic colocation service enables departments to physically store servers and other storage hardware at the Sliger Data Center. This centralized environment provides dedicated fast network infrastructure to FSU campus locations and allows departments to interconnect their storage with other data center customers locally and globally. The data center is equipped with robust networking, an uninterruptible power supply and air-cooled rotary liquid chillers, providing an ideal environment for critical data storage. So stop storing servers in closets and give your data the home it deserves.
