As America’s fastest rising university, UCR takes a pioneering approach to overcoming the complex challenges confronting our world. Innovative research and discovery are at the very core of UCR’s purpose, and must therefore be powered and protected by the most advanced and secure data management technologies available.  


For this reason, Information Technology Solutions (ITS) is proud to introduce Project Genesis. Project Genesis aims to meet the mounting data management demands of our top-ranking University by migrating key data center infrastructure and equipment to a leading-edge colocation data center facility. 


At a time when power providers are abruptly shutting down the grid, fire and earthquake danger is high, and cyberattacks are on the rise, our growing University requires advanced data management safeguards to bolster its success. 


On behalf of ITS, I invite you to discover the story behind Project Genesis and follow our shared progress at as we take the next important step toward improving UCR’s data management infrastructure. 


Thank you for your continued partnership.
