What We Provide:

  • Cloud style access to all your data: store, read, process, share
  • Hybrid: fast local storage for hot data, flexible cloud space for cold data
  • Transparent to the user: the system handles hot and cold data automatically
  • Security: we provide the tools to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data

We Make This Happen by:

  • Building interfaces to access data
  • Public cloud access with Aalto user account: Done
  • Expanding our on-campus fast flash storage with automatic tiering functionality: Done
  • Implementing S3 object storage interface for data
  • Developing new ways and tools to access data both in cloud and on the campus, such as VDI
  • Implementing a high quality disaster recovery & backup solution: Done

  1. cloud style access: onedriven monipuolisempi käyttö, S3 Azure Aalto-tunnuksella

    cloud desktop? win/mac/linux, data is accessible with Azure AD

    Security: Microsoft A5 licensing

    Developing new ways and tools(…): VDI, S3, Onedrive

    Implementing S3: Local S3, Cloud S3

  2. Maybe the Data Platform* could be included either here, or as a separate item. (*-meaning Data Pipelines, Data Warehouse, reporting, visualization, AI & Machine Learning).
    Azure Data Platform & Data Pipeline(s) provides a wide set of capabilities that support AI IT Vision.

    Also the Journey of transitioning Aalto into a Data Driven Organization and the non-technical parts of the transformation could be examined.

  3. Interfaces are super important! Not only for “ready-made dashboards” but also for the raw data.

    We need to be able to ask all the questions we have, not only the ones answered by dashboards. And we need to be able to refine our questions in many different ways.

    We also need to be able to reprocess different forms of data in all the ingenious ways we come up with.
