New Amazon Web Services Offering for UW Now Available

Amazon Web Services logo

UW researchers and technical staff in need of easy-to-deploy, cost-effective computing and related services, including virtualized servers, cloud storage, databases and more, now can use UW-IT Amazon Web Services. This new cloud-based service offering provides appropriate security, privacy and compliance terms for use with UW sensitive and confidential data (protected by FERPA, FISMA, and later HIPAA). It also qualifies for the UW’s new Indirect Cost (F&A) Waiver, resulting in significantly better rates for use of cloud services by research grants, and offers a waiver for data egress fees.
