The webinar covers how the IPv4 Waiting List works, how to submit a request, and what you can expect once you’re added. The webinar also describes the basics of other valuable services ARIN can provide, such as assistance with obtaining an ASN, deploying IPv6, and using routing security services like ARIN’s new web-based Internet Routing Registry (IRR).

    Explanations of the ARIN policy development process, and the benefits of participation to you and your organization are provided. This informal session allows attendees to ask questions, submit requests, and/or schedule follow-up appointments with ARIN staff to provide one-on-one assistance.

    Aug. 24 The Pacific Research Platform, National Research Platform, Global Research Platform and Nautilus

    The PRP/NRP/GRP now represents a partnership among more than 50 institutions. Most host Flash I/O Network Appliances (FIONAs), which are rack-mounted PCs. FIONAs are advanced Science DMZ Data Transfer Nodes, optimized for 10-100Gbps data transfer and sharing. Many sport two to eight GPU add-in boards. 165 of these 10-100G connected FIONAs have been joined into a “hyper-converged cluster” called Nautilus, which uses Google’s open-source Kubernetes to orchestrate software containers across the distributed system.

    The speakers will discuss how you can participate in Nautilus and review Nautilus’ use of Ansible to automate tasks, and advanced measuring and monitoring.
    Speakers: Dmitry Mishin: Applications Developer at University of California San Diego; John Graham: Senior Development Engineer at University of California San Diego.

    Aug. 11 Using the Remote Office Hours Queue App to Simplify Student-Faculty Interactions

    When the University of Michigan moved to remote operations in March, faculty asked the CIO for a way to emulate the in-person process for “office hours” (during which students line up for one-on-one meetings). Eric Boyd, U-M’s Director of Networks, and his team created a web application called Remote Office Hours Queue to “queue up’” students. The app allows professors and TAs to share queues (or a large queue as a team), if necessary, cutting the wait time for students. This pattern is used for many other services, including academic advising. This session also features the source code so you can apply it to your campus.
