Cloud Research Computing Consulting

Consulting service for researchers wishing to use Columbia-provisioned cloud accounts for research computing

CUIT’s Research Computing Services (RCS) team offers consulting services for researchers that would like to use Columbia-provisioned cloud accounts for their research computing.

Depending on your needs, our consulting services can address any of the following topics:

  • Overview of the features of the Cloud service provider
  • Creation and initial configuration of images
  • Software installation and license management
  • Storage configuration
  • Planning workflow for efficiency and/or price


In order to provide as effective a service as possible, we ask that interested researchers contact the RCS team at rcscloud-support@columbia.edu before beginning to use an account for research. Please note that this service is only available for accounts that have been provisioned by CUIT. For more information, please the Amazon Web Services (AWS) listing in CUIT’s Service Catalog.
