Cloud Computing

ACT built a private cloud to enhance disaster recovery (DR) readiness. We also pilot-tested the capacity of Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-computing platform to host UC San Diego websites using the Campus Content Management System (CMS). This, with on-premises CMS management, provides a hybrid cloud model. ACT recently published Guidelines for Cloud Computing.

Blink Refresh

We completed a design refresh of the Blink homepage to improve user experience. The enhanced site uses the Responsive Web Design framework to optimally present content on a user’s device. Design enhancements include a new Blink homepage layout. In 2014, we will refresh all Blink content pages.

Content Management System (CMS)

To offer the best tools and services to students, faculty and staff, ACT integrated the Responsive Web Design framework into over 100 academic and administrative websites and applications. The CMS now supports over 150 campus websites.
