Webinar - Amazon Web Services Portal for research and education

16 June 2014 at 11:21am
Friday, June 20, 2014 - 10:30

The session is available on 3 different dates: Friday 20 June 9.30-10.30am

                                                                  Wednesday 25 June 11-12pm

                                                                  Friday 27 June 9.30-10.30am

You are invited to join Amazon Web Services (AWS) webinar to hear about the newly-launched ‘HE Portal’, created by AWS, Janet and Arcus Global. The Portal enables users in the Janet community to procure AWS cloud services with new, additional benefits including: 

• monthly invoicing (no credit cards required for payment) 

• itemized billing, consolidated across users/departments 

• billing in GBP, not dollars 

• the ability to set spending-limits per user, or by department 

• volume-discounts through aggregation across multiple HE institutions 

In the webinar you will find out how to sign up to the Portal, and hear a short overview of AWS technologies and how they are being used by universities, researchers and schools around the world, to reduce costs, shorten academic projects, and increase the speed and impact of research. 

The webinar is aimed at any user in the Janet community (in HE, FE or schools) with an interest in AWS (whether or not an existing AWS user), and at System Administrators who could act as central points of contact for consolidated, multi-user billing.
