Research Computing in the Cloud @ UCF

The Research Technology & Innovation team at Office of Research & Commercialization, under the leadership of Dr. Klonoff and Dr. Hartman, would like to invite you for two days with Amazon Web Services (AWS) experts. This will help you jump-start your cloud computing and storage research projects without the need for upfront capital expense (which can be huge for infrastructure) and give you the agility to scale your resources according to your needs.


JAN 12: AWS Research Initiatives with the National Funding Bodies

On Jan 12, an AWS expert will be on site for a 1 hour talk on AWS Research Initiatives with the National Funding Bodies followed by a half hour general Q&A session (9am-10:30am, TA 117).

Please download the slides for this talk here


FEB 22: AWS Scientific Computing Immersion Day 1

On Feb 22, UCF will host an AWS Scientific Computing Immersion Day (9am-5pm, TA 117) where AWS specialists will conduct hands-on BYOD training sessions for researchers (faculty, post-docs and students) on topics such as Compute, Storage, Database, Machine Learning, Big Data, Image analysis etc. to help you get started. (Tentative Agenda)


MAR 21: AWS Scientific Computing Immersion Day 2

The AWS Immersion Day 2 will engage University faculty interested in computational science and engineering as well as big data analytics with AWS specialists to explore potential use of AWS technologies to advance your research interests. It includes presentations and hands-on-labs on Big Data Analytics and High Throughput Computing including Hybrid Cloud Approach. (Tentative Agenda)


Funding Opportunities

Funding opportunities are available! Amazon Web Services offers awards to researchers that grant you credits to use on the cloud for storage, compute resources, etc. You can submit research proposals for Data Analytics, Internet of Things, Data Science, High Performance Computing, etc. The proposals are evaluated every couple of months throughout the year.
