Linux Computing at MIT
From Red Line to Online
Exiting the Red Line Cambridge subway station, I turned left and headed south on Massachusetts Avenue. I was on my way to meet Jonathan Reed, Athena Consulting Supervisor, at MIT. Reed supervises the team that supports the campus-wide UNIX and Linux environment.
Running a technical support group for a sophisticated user community like MIT, is no small feat. Processes must be quick and foolproof. Just like any other managed user community, standards help maintain reliability and availability. And, every fall brings a new corps of users. Considering the killer workload of the students and professors, the last thing anybody needs are computer-related distractions.
Reed's group keeps Unix, Linux, and Athena running smoothly.
