Here's my version:
The Data Center is where all the information from places like the Financial Aid office or the Admission office is backed up. When I was there, the center had about 20 backup machines; one of my main duties was to replace backup disks when the disks were full. The Data Center was also responsible for supporting the campus networks and servers. If something was wrong with the network or a server, our staff was responsible for fixing it. Therefore when I was an operator, my main duty was to monitor the system. For example, I was responsible for the DNS server and the email server. My job involved constantly monitoring a screen that showed the names of the servers; when something went wrong, a red light would blink next to that name, and I was then responsible for contacting the appropriate member of the support staff and for producing a log of the actions I had taken.
