Bryant’s innovative data center named for former VP of information services
July 16th, 2012
Arthur S. Gloster, who retired as Bryant's vice president for information services in 2011, returned to campus on July 10 for the dedication of the University's data center in his name, above.
Five years ago, in partnership with IBM and APC, Gloster led the initiative to turn the data center into a model of energy-efficient green technology. The initiative enabled Bryant to realize a 15 percent reduction in energy consumption and a 42 percent reduction in cooling — results that were so substantial, the University decided to implement the same "smart building" technology in a number of buildings across campus.
