Abstract

Abstract:Growth at Old Dominion Freight Lines, Inc. (ODFL) necessitated the relocation of the presentDisaster Recovery (DR) center in Greensboro, NC to a newly constructed center located inThomasville, NC. The old DR site was functional and equipped with modern equipmentcomparable to most other corporate DR sites. The relocation provided a unique opportunityfor ODFL and NCA&T SU. ODFL is a third-generation Triad business with an establishedhistory of giving back to their community. ODFL made a grant of the existing DR center toNCA&T SU and to Davidson County Community College (DCCC) for the purpose ofestablishing state-of-the-art IT data center research and experience-based learning labs.This project aims to improve data center management techniques for better informationavailability, reliability, security, and cost efficiency. The broader impacts of this project includedevelopment of advanced IT skills in the Triad workforce. This project will enhance learningoutcomes of enterprise computing technology students at NCA&T SU, area communitycolleges, and high schools by engaging students in applied research and providing hands-onexperienced-based learning. Additionally, availability of a skilled IT workforce will expand theTriad area economy by assisting the expansion of existing Triad enterprises and attractingnew information technology dependent enterprises to relocate to the Triad.
