This Tech Briefing focused on Salesforce — a cloud computing company best known for its customer relationship management product — now being used at the Graduate School of Business, and other departments around campus.
a grad student looking for somewhere to publish supplementary data for a journal article?
a faculty member looking for an easy way to make high-quality research data accessible to others?
an institute’s data manager looking for a robust and reliable means to preserve irreplaceable data?
a research grant administrator looking for a way to meet data sharing requirements for a grant proposal?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then The Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) may be the answer for you!
In this session, you will learn more about Stanford Libraries’ robust and secure preservation system, and how you can use it to preserve and share research data, creative outputs, and other types of scholarly works.
You’ll also find out about choosing materials for deposit, preparing data and metadata, how the online deposit tool works, and how to get started using the SDR now.
This session focused on what’s new with Creative Cloud — the new desktop version of Adobe products in the Creative Suite — and the added tools and services to facilitate creating and collaborating.
Jim Babbage, Solutions Consultant at Adobe, reviewed the enhancements to Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Muse, and Acrobat. He also explored how these applications collaborate, and how other Creative Cloud tools/apps complement them.
This session provides an overview of the VMWare Vision, focusing on NSX and the Virtual Cloud Hybrid Service.
NSX delivers a completely new operational model for networking that breaks through current physical network barriers. This allows data center operators to achieve order of magnitude better speed, economics and choice.
The Virtual Cloud Hybrid Service (vCHS) is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud operated by VMware. It is built on vSphere, and allows customers to quickly and seamlessly extend their datacenter into the cloud.

On February 21st, Apple released a security patch for iOS that addressed a major flaw in both iOS 6 and iOS 7. Only users of the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4th generation were granted access to a version that kept their devices on iOS 6, thus forcing thousands of users at Stanford to upgrade from iOS 6 to iOS 7.
During this Tech Briefing, Ammy Woodbury discussed why this patch was so critical. She also covered:
new features of iOS7
navigational tips and tricks
how to change settings to make iOS 7 look and feel a little more like iOS 6
tricks to optimize your iPhone and iPad experience
Note: The Information Security Office recommends upgrading to iOS 7.0.6 immediately. Be sure to back up your iOS device prior to upgrading, either via iTunes or iCloud. Then, go to Settings>General>Software Update to upgrade your operating system.
