December 13, 2018 / NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced a new cooperative agreement with Internet2, a nonprofit computer networking consortium, to build partnerships with commercial cloud computing providers and support science applications in new and more effective uses of cloud computing capabilities. The NSF-funded Internet2 project, Exploring Clouds for Acceleration of Science (E-CAS), will investigate the viability of commercial clouds as an option for leading-edge research computing and computational science supporting a range of academic disciplines. Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform have signed on as the initial cloud computing providers in this endeavor.
