Public cloud providers Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure are approved for use by Indiana University faculty and staff through central contracts. (Student accounts on these services are not covered.)
Prior to obtaining an account or developing using AWS, GCP, or Azure at IU, you must follow the steps in Get started.
AWS, GCP, and Azure are approved for data classified as Public or University-Internal data. Use of these platforms to store, process, or transmit Critical or Restricted data (including, but not limited to, health data regulated by HIPAA and payment card data) must be specifically approved by the appropriate Data Stewards or responsible office (for example, the Office of the Treasurer for PCI data).
