Amazon AWS Education Grant Program

Sam Kome (R&D Librarian) and John McDonald (CUC CIO) kindly let me know about the Amazon Education Grant Program, under which educators, researchers Amazon Web Services and students can be granted free usage credits on Amazon Web Services “to tap into the on-demand infrastructure of the Amazon Web Services cloud to teach advanced courses, tackle research endeavors, and explore new projects – tasks that previously would have required expensive up-front and ongoing investments in infrastructure”.

So if you’re feeling the need for a server, take a look into this.  I’d be very interested in learning about your experience.
