To Paul’s question, perhaps at what point do cost considerations come into play and weigh more in the context of longer term investment.
Orlando Leon

Thank you.

How much time did you spend setting up the whole thing and what level of skill was required?

On use of R for analysis, there are some great documents about how to leverage AWS services to run R. A good place to start is https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/big-data/running-r-on-aws/
Keith Inman CSU East Bay
01:55:23
Thanks, that was quite helpful.

Thanks! That helps!

Not sure why you couldnt hear me but Varun and I are always here to work with you to help get environments set up. We are here to help!

For SHARING, how does it work across the country boundaries, e.g., is it usable if you are in, say, China? Thanks.

That is an AMAZING resource. I want…

Nathan Keim (Cal Poly SLO)
02:50:43
which availability region(s) have direct peering?
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office
02:52:00
we're peered to AWS backbone. Obviously the speed of light affects latency but for bulk data transfer you should be able to access any region
Nathan Keim (Cal Poly SLO)
02:52:14
thanks!
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office
02:52:46
be glad to hear reports on your experience
Varun (AWS)
02:52:46
Yes, Also all AWS regions are interconnected with high network throughput.
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office
02:53:18
from a latency perspective the California regions obviously will be the quickest access

Michael, It would be nice to have a copy of this Zoom meeting posted somewhere and also a copy of these slides (if possible) too...
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office
02:54:58
the entire video will be online once we get it captioned
Amie Carobrese (AWS Account Manager)

If you have an existing AWS account:You’re 100% welcome to use this account.The workshop will use ~$1 of resources. Don’t forget to turn off resources at the end of the session.
Felix Zuniga (CO)
02:55:31
no
Amie Carobrese (AWS Account Manager)
02:55:36
If you don’t have an AWS account:You can sign into one of our accounts here: https://kevinj.signin.aws.amazon.com/consoleUsername: CSUworkshopPassword: BirminghamMake sure to name resources after yourself to avoid naming conflicts, e.g. ”Notebook-PrinceHarryDukeOfSussex”Your achievements will be mercilessly wiped out at the end of the session

02:58:32
Michael, having the AWS Summit presentation slides (outside of the Zoom talk) would be useful too--we need to create local workshops/tools for different kinds of users (tech folks, budget folks, etc.)

Hi Everyone - Felix Zuniga just emailed a copy of the tutorial to everyone we had on the registration list

AWS EC2 Instance types with use-cases - https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/
Matt Clark (Sonoma State)
03:26:52
Does it matter which Availability Zone that you use?
wayne.smith@csun.edu
03:27:21
for the static web page, are server-side includes available, or does any dynamic WWW activity need to move to an EC2 instance?
Raymond Jackson CSUEB
03:27:43
The users are responsible for OS patching, correct? Even if the image was from AWS?
Varun (AWS)
03:28:37
Yes, for EC2 the user is responsible for OS patching.
Varun (AWS)
03:29:33
Yes, you can use EC2 systems manager to check for patches/updates and apply it.

Michael, have we figured out a way to prevent (or audit) CSU-restricted data (Social Security numbers, PCI, etc.). Or rather, can multiple levels in the CSU audit the ACLs, etc.?
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office
03:30:40
Varun can answer but I believe AWS has a DLP service you can use
Varun (AWS)
03:31:05
Yes, AWS Config can be used to audit your AWS configurations
Varun (AWS)
03:31:17
there are third party tools that alert you as well
Varun (AWS)
03:31:49
AWS Cloud trail logs every API activity made in AWS.
Michael Berman - Chancellor's Office

Ryan do you know what Cal Poly is using or planning to use in your environment
