Amazon Web Services (AWS) now available for research computing

by in , , , ,

Thanks to a new agreement between CSU Channel Islands (CI) and Amazon, faculty and campus departments now have access to provision affordable, high-performance research computing resources through Amazon Web Services (AWS) on an as-needed, pay-as-you-go basis, including virtual servers, storage and databases and other services.

Because of our agreement, T&I's master AWS account and billing arrangement enables faculty & departments to create their own AWS linked accounts and facilitates management of central billing and cost-recovery by T&I.

CI's Computer Science program is an early adopter of the new service and has already seen a dramatic difference in reduction of processing time for their computing resources. We're glad to share in their immediate success, and excited to share this new opportunity with the CI community.

Please visit the CI Amazon Web Services web site for more details about AWS service and learn how to get started.
