More and more UGA colleges, departments and administrative units are hosting their servers that contain critical systems and data in the Boyd Data Center. The center was renovated in 2006 to include a 4,300 square foot addition (for a total of 16,000 sq ft) and is supported by an enterprise class generator, remote camera monitoring, secure card access, 2 commercial UPS units, and a gas fire-suppression system.

As State and Federal regulations have become more stringent around the disposal of electronic media that may contain sensitive information, the ability to insure proper destruction of this media has grown in importance. The Boyd Data Center is pleased to support this life cycle end of sensitive information storage media with a new destruction service.
The process is easy to complete and inexpensive. Complete data destruction form. Bring the media and the form to the Boyd Data Center. Staff will register the receipt of the media and within 5 to 7 business days you will be emailed a certificate of destruction.
If you would like to utilize this service, please contact Jeff Teasley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 706-542-7802.
