CU Boulder OIT has set a goal to support workloads across research, teaching and administration in the public cloud.  Starting with AWS we are attempting to provide a service which minimizes the “undifferentiated heavy lifting” that needs to be done to utilize cloud resources, allows for many diverse workloads and brings cost efficiency where possible.  This talk will discuss our approach so far, the tools and approaches and the lessons learned along the way.



Jason Armbruster is the Enterprise Cloud Architect for CU Boulder and co-lead of the HEROIC (Higher Education and Research Operations in the Cloud) Meetup.  Jason has spent 20+ years in various University of Colorado IT organizations architecting and building IT systems.  Most recently, Jason joined CU Boulder OIT in 2017 to focus on bringing the benefits of public cloud to CU.
