Wednesday, February 24, 2021, 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET
How Universities are Providing Self-Service Cloud Environments for Researchers
In partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Internet2 NET+ is pleased to invite you to join this virtual event designed to aid Higher Education researchers leverage new self-service, managed, cloud-based research environment solutions.
During the session, you will be introduced to two new solutions — RONIN and Service Workbench on AWS — that are helping researchers from the University of Sydney and Harvard Medical School quickly and securely set up managed research compute environments. Additionally, there will be an AWS Solutions Architect participating and available to answer any technical questions that you may have.
During this 90-minute virtual event, you can expect to learn how:
- RONIN gives researchers explicit budget control and forecasting so they can use their research budgets effectively
- RONIN also provides research IT with administrative oversight into researcher spend and control over the security policies enforced across all RONIN users
- Service Workbench promotes collaboration around data, by enabling researchers to upload and share data sets, and also allows quick access to public research data sets hosted by AWS
- Service Workbench provides researchers with spend transparency and control by enabling them to see individual workspace costs, as well as spend across projects and organizational units.
Speakers: Parice Brandies, PhD Candidate, University of Sydney School of Life and Environmental Sciences; Paul Avillach, Assistant Professor in Pediatrics & Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital; Nathan Albrighton, CEO and Founder of RONIN; Madhu Bussa, Sr. Solutions Architect, AWS; Oren Sreebny, Consultant Internet2 Cloud Programs, Internet2.
