Information Technology Services at Yale recently achieved its goal of transitioning from five to one physical data centers on campus, a process that took approximately six years. This was accomplished through significant analysis and subsequent adoption of virtualization and cloud storage. Storage capacity was also maximized by basing it on actual usage trends and needs. Rather than building a new facility to accommodate growth, ITS decreased physical space, hardware, and energy usage, and increased overall efficiency.
