Cloud Smart initiative
Our vision is to increase our footprint for server and networking infrastructure in the cloud. This will help us in modernizing our infrastructure gain agility, security, lower TCO and build a secure, stable platform for next generation of learning, research computing and other technical services.
We have selected Azure as our preferred provider and have begun setting up a new core infrastructure.
Connectivity has been established between the Hoboken campus, the Azure production site, and Azure disaster recovery sites. The Azure core platform is configured using Microsoft’s best practices to handle no to low impact servers and workload. The team is actively configuring a new PaloAlto firewall in Azure which will allow us to protect our workloads in the cloud.
