MS Dissertation title: The Asgard Project, bringing modern design to the enterprise

MS Advisor(s): Stephen Gilbert

Area of MS research: The goal of the Asgard Project is the development of a management interface and network appliance designed to provide a simplified user experience in deploying new server hardware in web hosting environments. Asgard is meant to bring systems administrators a higher order level of abstraction to the management of their server environment. By reducing the available options, Asgard frees the user to concentrate on other tasks.
