Duke Amazon Web Services Immersion Day a success!

70 Duke faculty, staff and students attended Amazon Web Services Event held this past week.  Missed the event? Check out these session resources.  To get notified of future Research Computing events, subscribe to the Research Computing Newsletter.

Note from the IT Security Office: We have begun discussions with Amazon around a potential master service agreement with accompanying data security requirements and business associate agreement.  However, while we have a long term vision that includes the use of AWS for many purposes, at present this solution is not acceptable for projects involving sensitive data such as protected health information (PHI), FERPA, export controlled or other confidential data. Any researchers or students who have questions about the use of AWS for projects involving research data should contact Duke University and Medicine Security Offices (security@duke.edu) to vet the concept or use of AWS before proceeding.
