American Power Conversion (APC), a global provider of end-to-end infrastructure availability solutions, has launched Data Center University, an online educational institution for IT professionals, engineers and people involved in building or operating server rooms and data centers.

Data Center University by APC includes both classroom and Web-based courses. The initial launch offers 14 foundational courses and six advanced courses in the subject areas of data center design, build and operations. All courses, which are vendor neutral and do not promote APC products, focus on the critical technologies and best practices that are relevant to leading- edge, scaleable, modular data center infrastructure. Actual data center executives with decades of combined experience participated in the development of the courses. Individuals can complete most of the online, on-demand courses in less than one hour.
