MTA, STU to save $120K per year by consolidating IT at UNB data centre

August 26, 2016

Mount Allison University and St Thomas University are collaborating to save $120K every year by consolidating portions of their IT equipment and services in a single data centre. An MTA release states that most of the savings will come by reallocating staff to other priorities, but adds that at least $25K will be saved through reduced licensing and hardware costs, power consumption, and facility maintenance. “We enjoy a high level of co-operation and collaboration across IT units in our region, which makes possible this highly innovative and cost-effective strategy,” said MTA President Robert Campbell. The new data centre will be located at the University of New Brunswick. MTA
