Hi Michelle - could you also share your public information on your CloudFirst program with me?
I am interested in looking at what other schools transitioned to the cloud especially the ERP system.

We have over 80% of our IT services in the cloud, 64% of them in AWS.  This includes our main www.nd.edu site (our first foray to AWS) and our ERP system.  If you are interested, I can share our public information on our CloudFirst program.
Thanks,
Michelle

​Bob,

We successfully moved our website hosting platform which hosts our central website www.ucd.ie and a couple of hundred other websites for the University to AWS 2-3 of years ago.  The central website and about 50% of the other websites are published from our CMS which is T4.  The remaining websites are published from locally managed Dreamweaver instances.

We used a local partner to do the AWS implementation and they also manage the platform on a 24*7 basis. The main driver for the project was to move to a platform which was managed on a 24*7 basis, in house we only have 9-5 M-F resources with some limited on call.  The move was very successful and performance & uptime are good.

I am happy to answer more questions if you want to contact me me directly.

Best regards,

Genevieve Dalton

Colleagues,

 

I posted this recently to the CCCG Slack group, but in the interests of casting the widest possible net to capture the largest number of great ideas, I’m cross posting a couple of places. My apologies for filling your inbox.

 

To date usage of the web-scale public cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP) at Indiana University has been limited to small-scale experimentation, a targeted PaaS service or two, development by a few cloud-savvy developers and of course researchers forging ahead of central IT. In an effort to bring together subject area experts (e.g., security, networking, ops, etc.) to start learning in hands-on detail how the public cloud works, I am gathering ideas for a starter enterprise project to build out. We've kicked around things like the central website, CAS, or maybe storage. I'd like to know what others have done or, in hindsight would have done, as this kind of team learning project. What have you got?

 

To be clear, I’m not talking about the process of building a cloud team. I am just looking for ideas of projects that could serve as a focus of such a team. Did you have the luxury of experimentation or were you driven by crisis or deadline? What project, in short, provided the best learning experience for the broadest group of roles?

 

Thanks for any and all ideas!

 

Bob Flynn
