AWS - Service Description
UW Public Cloud is a CIO-sponsored initiative to deliver public cloud computing services to UW-Madison faculty, staff, and departments. The initial offering focuses on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) in the form of Amazon Web Services (AWS) by DLT.
The campus AWS offering is out of pilot and received a major improvement for pricing in February 2019.
- The net cost to campus customers will be less or than equal to Amazon's published rates for AWS, but will include a 15% network egress waiver. Please see AWS - Pricing, Billing FAQ for additional detail or contact the cloud team.
The AWS campus offering does not currently include:
- The ability for customers to provision resources in campus IP space
- The ability for customers to process, store, or otherwise propagate sensitive or restricted data in AWS without an assessment by the Office of Cybersecurity
Please contact your local IT staff for guidance on AWS usage within your unit or department.
