Cloud Computing

The Data Science Practice (DSP) offers consultation support for cloud computing across a variety of third-party cloud service providers (e.g., AWS, Google Cloud, Azure). This consultation support is primarily geared towards the use of cloud computing services for research (e.g., data-intensive and high performance computing). But the DSP also has expertise in—and the ability to support—application deployment and containerization using cloud service providers. 

The DSP can also help members of the Brown community understand the relative advantages and disadvantages of using a cloud service provider versus Brown’s own internal resources (e.g., Center for Computation and Visualization). This will help researchers determined when using a cloud service provider might be the preferred option.
