Security and Stability for Environmental Web-based Applications

CABEM upgraded the server and virtual environment for TAB EZ, BIT and EKAT, three environmental web-based applications built and deployed by CABEM in collaboration with M2 Technologies and CHSR (The Center for Hazardous Substance Research), part of KSU’s College of Engineering. The new ESXi hosting platform runs multiple virtual machines on a thin hypervisor resulting in a more efficient use of memory, processor, and disk resources for better application performance. Sponsored by the EPATAB EZ (Technical Assistance to Brownfields communities ) and BIT (Brownfields Inventory Tool) web-based applications facilitate the funding and inventory management of Brownfields sites in the U.S. – both applications are free to the public. EKAT, also known as the Environmental Knowledge Assessment Tool, is being used commercially and by the military to identify, research, and evaluate environmental and safety related issues.
