UC Berkeley Cloud Meetup 038: Berkeley's Own Computing Infrastructure & Cloud Strategy (10/27/2022)

This meetup discusses the drivers behind Berkeley's infrastructure choices, which include a mix of the normal-- along with some unique, highly specialized computational needs typical of a highly competitive research university. We will delve into Berkeley's current infrastructure strategy initiative and how it aims to meet the University's challenges.

Our discussion will begin with some framing remarks by UC Berkeley CIO and Associate Vice Chancellor for IT, Jenn Stringer on the importance of our evolving strategy. We will then take up a fireside chat format welcoming of audience participation, moderated by Research IT Consulting+Outreach Lead Amy Neeser with UC Berkeley CTO Bill Allison, Director of Data & Platform Services Walter Stokes and Cloud Team Lead Robert Amos.
