Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is a collection of integrated cloud services used to build, deploy, and manage applications through a global network using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice. Students may sign up for a $100 free credit, which is good for 12 months. After the credits are gone, students can use a free Azure account provided by Microsoft. If using Azure for research, students may also be able to take advantage of research grants.

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.
