Sid Futures

Last Updated: Oct 10, 2019

Sid Futures planning is an ongoing process.  Check back Periodically.

Sid G.9 

The first Sid release, G.9 dropped in mid summer 2019.  As much as the team was excited at the features it held, the work was all in the core of the iceberg.  The team formalized development procedures, established automated testing and production environment creation, and overall prepared themselves for the long haul.   

With all of the heavy lifting however, there was no tangible change to the user experience and the product was not yet open for users.

Sid 1.0 is the first release supporting a production research environment.

  • Meet basic Harvard security requirements.
  • User Lifecycle Process & Documentation.
  • Operations Process & Documentation. 50 onboarded users with System support for 100.
  • Revamped UI prototype

Release:

  • Building blocks of 1 CPU and 4 GB RAM applications as an arbitrary limit
  • Meet Support for Confidential Data processing (Level 3).
  • Documentation Release
