Infrastructure and Applications Support

The Infrastructure and Applications Support (IAS) Group manages CDL's technology base -- the computers, network connections, operating systems, and database software -- that keeps CDL services up and running and enables continuous service innovation.

The group provides support at all points on the path: from development, to testing, to the release and maintenance of a new service. This support entails researching, purchasing, and managing the best hardware and software solutions on the market, monitoring network connections and security threats, and working with CDL program staff to adapt software for specific needs. Along the way, the group creates a safe place for development and testing; ensures that services run 24 hours a day, seven days a week; and coordinates with two data centers, partnering to resolve any technical issues that arise.
