Public Cloud


Research IT is able to help you create virtual machines, setup object storage, process big data, etc. in the cloud.  There are several benefits to using ResearchIT for this service vs establishing your own account:

  • Negotiated University discount
  • Machines are created on University subnets, and behave just like machines on campus (login with your NetID, on campus storage can be mounted, etc.)
  • Ability to utilize University licensing for OS and software
  • VM's are managed by IT professionals, allowing you to focus on your research, and not cloud administration tasks
