Research IT

Help to Manage your Cloud Resources

If you are currently using Cloud resources but are having to use your own or an institutional credit card to pay for them – help is at hand!

Research IT has built a framework within Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable University researchers to use the many resources available, from object storage to machine instances (VMs) to Kubernetes clusters!

You can move your existing AWS account to the Research IT framework enabling you to take advantage of:

  • a monthly invoice which can be charged back to a research (or other) account; no credit card needed!
  • tech support and consultancy from RIT; we will help you get started and make the best use of what is on offer
  • aggregated procurement means that we can negotiate the best possible prices

A limited amount of resources are being paid for by The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) in order to help develop this new service. If you would like to join in, please get in touch!
