PIs who have an active CISE award can request cloud computing resources thru CloudBank. This type of request is just-in-time as opposed to requiring PIs to budget for resources at the time of proposal submission, in the hopes of maximizing on the elasticity of the cloud and providing users with computing cycles when they need them.
PIs who are submitting proposals to CloudBank-eligible solications, can request cloud resources as part of their NSF proposal.
Any researcher or educator, regardless if they have an active NSF award, can request small amounts of time for classroom, data sharing, or exploratory purposes.
Faculty from any US university may deposit startup funds with CloudBank to be spent in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
If you want to use CloudBank to help you manage planned or existing cloud funds at your home institute, please see our Enterprise options.
