Server Hosting at AWS/Azure


The Cloud Program provides access to cloud-based IT Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for easy and rapid acquisition, development, and scaling of resources. Cloud computing meets users’ needs in a secure manner without the requirement to purchase and maintain physical hardware. The Cloud Program lets you focus on your own services, research, or end users by reducing the administrative and technical debt associated with purchasing, powering, and maintaining servers.

Depending on your needs and budget, the Cloud Program can connect you to resources at AWS or Azure for traditional server hosting, research data storage, high performance computing, or high throughput computing.
