AWS Projects Completed During the Summer

The Summer of 2014 has seen  LCSEE Systems accomplish several projects to improve the computing experience in the  Lane Department by utilizing  Amazon Web Services (AWS), a mature, popular cloud computing platform. Following the cloud computing model, Amazon hosts data centers Systems uses to provide web applications and shell environments, obviating the need for physical infrastructure maintenance such as deploying power and air conditioning solutions. In this article the enhancements applied by LCSEE Systems to departmental computing resources are described. These are improved monitoring of computing resources, a web-based system for submitting graduate tuition waivers, and a powerful environment for students enrolled in the computer science course “File and Data Structures” (CS 210).
