Advantages of an Installer for Mayon and for Vesuvius

  • Allows quick set-up or rip-down of demo instances.
  • Encourages outside parties (whether Federal, State, local, NGO, or commercial) who wish to adopt our system but host it themselves, typically to apply their own customizations or integration, beyond what our staff could provide.
  • For such parties, reduces the need for in-house system expertise, manual time-consuming configuration, and/or help solicitation from time-limited CUNY and NLM experts.
