Green Computing

CRON have consolidated and 'virtualized' a good number of its servers. Further, we now run these virtualized servers from out of the Media Lab's vSphere 6.0 environment. As a result, we have powered down our entire VM hosting setup. Fewer boxes, smaller carbon footprint, healthier planet.

By populating clusters with dual-boot computers, we've also reduced our energy footprint. CRON also favors products with the highest Energy Star ratings and those companies most committed to the environment.

Rapid Prototyping

All RPL equipment is managed out of the WorkShop group led by Chris Dewart and Justin Lavalle. Email rpl@mit.edu or visit the RPL web site for more information.
