Benchmarking

Benchmarking Project

During the 2010-2011 academic year, I completed a major benchmarking project as part of my tenure as star lab fellow. The purpose of the project was to determine how the performance of various computing resources compared to each other and how speeds could be improved. The project soon became a comprehensive examination comparing hardware and software. Although it is focused on the users of the Political Science department at the University of Rochester, there are some aspects that apply generally.
