IaaS services uptick in .edu


Great to stumble across and finally see this happening:

[James-MacBook-Pro]$ host huit.harvard.edu

huit.harvard.edu has address 50.17.51.113

huit.harvard.edu mail is handled by 20 alt2.aspmx.l.google.com.
huit.harvard.edu mail is handled by 20 alt1.aspmx.l.google.com.

for those wondering what "50.17.51.113" is, here it is...

[James-MacBook-Pro]$ nslookup 50.17.51.113
Server:  10.0.1.1
Address: 10.0.1.1#53

Non-authoritative answer:
113.51.17.50.in-addr.arpa name = ec2-50-17-51-113.compute-1.amazonaws.com.




Awesome to see a major .edu IT org using not one but three outsourced services!
