Summary: The MDUSD Data Center serves all sites with critical technology services, including Internet. Uninterruptable power is important to mitigate for the power failures that occur regularly in the Concord area. Our current solution is dated. Racking cabinets in the MDUSD Data Center were not planned for the demands of modern networks and require upgrading and repositioning. A new Liebert UPS system and Vertiv cabinet system will serve the District's needs for the next ten or more years.
Funding: IT Department Budget
Fiscal Impact $310,050.97
