Relocating Your Campus Data Center

Moving your data center off campus? We can help.

Running your own on-campus data center can be capital-intensive – and can also take up valuable real estate that you could otherwise use for more classrooms and extra lab space. By working with FirstLight, you can relocate your data to a well-protected, off-campus data center – and still have high-performance networking. Meanwhile, your staff are freed up to focus on mission-critical jobs, and not having to repair or replace gear every few years.
