Technology

WOLFRAM RESEARCH AND MATHEMATICA

Working with Wolfram Research, LoG has established a business partnership that facilitates important access to technology and support for our work. Currently, LoG is working with Wolfram Research to design technical specifications for delivery of our Educational Modules to those geographies that do not have internet available

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

EPC is a self-contained appliance consisting of a web application installed on a Virtual Machine (VM) running CentOS. The minimum system requirements for a single virtual machine instance of EPC are 8-core CPU, 8 Wolfram kernels, 16GB of RAM and 150GB of storage space.

EPC is a self-packaged virtual machine that can run in single-or multiple-machine configurations on these supported hypervisors: Amazon EC2, VMware, VirtualBox and KVM. EPC installation will run within infrastructures that support regulatory standards, so you can maintain compliance with HIPAA, FERPA, GLB and other acts or requirements.

Wifi hotspots: If applicable, there will be a radio attached with large antenna (meter long) to reach several hundred feet radius. Longer radius possible but requires FCC approval in US.
