Guidance to the Future Direction: Creating a Cloud-Based Repository using AWS
MetadataShow full item record
The profound scope of research administration brings an administrative burden, and the administrative burden takes a toll on faculties conducting the research. Almost half of the time spent on research is distributed to the research-related administrative tasks. Drowning in the increase of administrative burden, institutions have implemented a solution to reduce administrative burden and increase the productivity in research administration: a cloud-based infrastructure. These cloud-based infrastructures are created using commercial products and services provided by various vendors in the market. While there are institutions that utilize a cloud-based infrastructure to automate, simplify, and reduce administrative tasks, many institutions have yet to understand the need for it and adopt a cloud-based infrastructure. This project provides a tutorial guide for institutions of higher education, without a cloud-based infrastructure, to create a cloud-based repository. The cloud-based repository in the guide is created from a cloud platform provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Unlimited storage, cost optimization, and automated process for repetitive tasks, cloud-based repositories take the administrative burden off of faculties. Conclusively, the guide can be used by institutions to implement a customized cloud-based repository suited to their needs. The guide addresses the post-award phase of the award lifecycle. However, the cloud-based repository can be improved and enhanced to handle the workloads in the complete lifecycle of awards: pre-award, award, and post-award.
