As part of the computing services provided by us, we will take care to advertise
Regular updates on everything that is happening and innovating on communications and computers at the Faculty of Engineering
- A work plan for 2020 has been formulated and approved by the Faculty Computing Committee, based mainly on the development and upgrading of hardware, software and communications infrastructure, Based on the rationale for adapting an advanced, innovative and flexible infrastructure system that meets current and future faculty needs
- The faculty computing system is built on the Centos Linux 6.1 platform from Red Hat launched in August 2011
Red Hat has announced that Centos 6.1 will end in August 2020 (end of life) which means it will no longer support product development, development and release of critical operating system security updates As a result, we have put together a neat and detailed program, the purpose of which is to update the servers to a new versions, while planning the execution of Minimum Down Time
The following servers have been upgraded from Centos 6.1 to Centos 7.7:
Production - DHCP, LicServer02, Lsus
Learning - LTS Cluster (4 Linux servers) TS (4 Win Servers)
Infrastructure - Web Server, Lisbon, Antivirus, Zabbix, Load Balancer
The next step in the program is to upgrade the VLSI servers
- The following tools and services have been upgraded to the latest versions,
While adapting and integrating to the new environment:
NIS (network information service)
Apache Web Server
- We have added a monitoring system to the faculty's network and communications components Monitoring of computerized systems and communication built of multiple parameters, which affect the operation of systems in the organization.
Therefore, comprehensive and constant monitoring allows you to know instantaneously the status of network components, maintain complete organizational stability and streamline fault management processes before causing damage.
Thanks to ongoing monitoring, faults can be detected and diagnosed efficiently and quickly, and significantly reduce response time to complete resolution and return to normal.
- The desktop that the student receives in the classrooms, library and remote connection through the faculty terminal servers, richer and more updated, Matlab was upgraded from 2013 to 2019B
- We are in the final stages of a wireless communications infrastructure improvement project at Enics Lab,Project under which they were installed four access points across the lab to increase Wireless signal and instability issues
