Our session with Saint Louis University: Re-architecting the Cloud with Guardrails
When: Tuesday, March 5, 4:10 PM - 4:50 PM CT
Join us for an insightful session on Saint Louis University's cloud journey. The cloud journey at Saint Louis University started in 2020 with one team member, an immediate need to build out two cloud workloads, and the promise of a simplified front end to the cloud provided by an external cloud support contract. Over the next two years, their staffing remained the same as they added more production workloads and many proof of concepts. However, there was mounting frustration with the pace of new workflow development, the limitations of their SaaS front-end for management, and the need to re-architect existing workflows due to inefficient or poor design. Add on feedback from central IT regarding perceived security issues and they knew they had to reassess their cloud growth trajectory. To solve these challenges – and support the growth of the University’s production workflows – they pivoted their approach to introduce more automation and move to a guardrail concept for security and financial management. In this presentation, you will learn how Saint Louis University: implemented Kion for automation and guardrails, how they've crafted regulatory-compliant workspaces to support research needs, and details on their integration with the University’s SSO.
