Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a bundled remote computing service that provides cloud computing infrastructure over the Internet with storage, bandwidth and customized support for application programming interfaces (API). Students may sign up to use Amazon Web Services for free through the AWS Educate program. Graduate students may also apply for AWS Cloud Credit for Research.

Sensitive Data Compliance

Consult the U-M Sensitive Data Guide for information on the permitted data use with AWS. Note that personal AWS accounts may not necessarily comply even if the data type is listed as permitted. Students should consult with ITS Information Assurance (IA) if there are any questions about compliance.
