At A Cloud Guru, we value hands-on learning. That’s why we offer real cloud environments for learning with hands-on labs and playgrounds. As a part of resource management, we closely monitor lab and playground usage to ensure students are using labs and playgrounds for educational purposes only and that students aren’t using more resources than they need to learn.
We’ve created protocols to help us manage resources and here’s what you need to know:
|Abuse Event||Abuse Notification|
|If a student intentionally uses labs/playground for a non-educational purpose like bitcoin mining, their lab or playground will be shut down and they will be notified along with organizational administrators.|
|If a student unintentionally does something like selecting too large of an EC2 instance that uses excessive resources, their lab or playground will be shut down and they will be notified along with organizational administrators.|
|If a student continues to intentionally or unintentionally abuse labs or playgrounds after the initial shut down and notification, the student may be temporarily blocked from accessing labs or playgrounds or even permanently banned from using the product entirely.|
