Cloud resources for staff
IU has contracts with the three main public cloud platforms: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. They offer hyper-scale computing resources on demand for a wide variety of technology projects, from software development to AI/ML and from IoT to natural language processing. The discounts vary by platform, but all are below the commercial rates.
IU staff can use these IU-sanctioned computing environments for institutional workloads and application development. The IU Cloud Technology Support team provides guidance on platforms and tooling, and regularly arranges for direct consultations with software engineers from the cloud vendors, all at no cost to departments. To get started, see Get started.
A variety of training and certification prep resources are also available at low or no cost to IU employees. For a list of current training and support resources, see Cloud training resources.
