The three-day "Data Center Infrastructure Management" online learning class will be available November 16-18 through Merit's Professional Learning program.

Merit is a nonprofit corporation, owned and governed by Michigan's public universities, providing high-performance networking solutions to public universities, colleges, K-12 organizations, libraries, state government, healthcare, and other non-profit organizations.

Instruction will be entirely online — you can attend from anywhere where there is an Internet connection. You can also attend at Merit's offices if you need a space away from your daily demands. The course will provide knowledge about the professional management of data facilities, which is increasingly important for organizations of all types and sizes. It is of interest to individuals who manage data centers or server rooms, IT staff with hardware responsibilities, and facilities staff.

Trends like cloud computing and desktop virtualization are adding to the services that are provided from centralized computing facilities. At the same time, today's higher-performance servers place new demands on power management and cooling, and it is important for organizations to have ongoing knowledge about meeting those needs.

Significant savings are available for individuals from any organization to attend "Data Center Infrastructure Management," made possible through the contributions of Merit's Community Supporter Program.

Registration and more information are available here.
