About the Butler Data Center

Butler University's 1,500 square foot data center opened in 2009 and houses all major systems including BigDawg, Butler's supercomputer, and connections to iLight and the Internet.

Butler strives to use efficient and environmentally friendly equipment in the data center. A carefully engineered power infrastructure, use of recyclable materials, heat recovery, and high efficiency servers are a few of the ways Butler reduces the data center's environmental impact.

Redundant cooling, uninterruptible power supply, diesel generator, and gas fire suppression protect the data center from unplanned downtime.
