UCit Instructional & Research Computing featured on Apple.com

Don Rainwater, manager of Academic Technology Services, was featured in the “Profiles in Success” section of Apple’s site for his use of Xsan Apple storage to run UCFileSpace, the campus web server for faculty, students, and staff.

“Rainwater’s team supports eight computer labs scattered around the campus, which contain a mix of 325 Macs and PCs. Students also access UC’s online storage system — called UCFileSpace — from a mix of personal desktop and notebook computers on campus, and remotely via VPN (virtual private network) with a front-end tool built with 37Signals’ Ruby on Rails development framework. Once they’re connected to UCFileSpace, students can store any general-purpose content, including research papers, multimedia files, and other data.”

UCFileSpace is used to host all of the podcasts uploaded in classrooms or through Blackboard for the UCit Podcasting Project and also hosts QuickTime videos for use on the UC Second Life Learning Community island, so kudos to Don for the recognition of this great service for UC!
