How can I get an AWS or Azure account at IU?

At Indiana University, you can use public cloud computing accounts, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure accounts, for a variety of computing needs; for more, see What is cloud computing? IU has negotiated contracts with AWS and MS Azure; faculty and staff using university funds for or placing institutional data in AWS or Azure accounts need to go through these negotiated contracts. AWS and Azure accounts are billed to IU purchase orders from departments or researchers. Students are not eligible for AWS or Azure accounts under IU contracts.

To obtain an AWS or Azure account under the IU contract, the account owner should:

  1. Navigate to go.iu.edu/getpubliccloud and log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  2. At the top of the page, select the cloud provider(s) for which you are requesting a new account. If you're requesting access to an existing account and only need to sign the Indiana University Public Cloud Acceptable Usage Agreement (AUA), select AUA Only.
  3. Read the AUA and acknowledge that you agree with the terms and conditions it contains, and then click Submit. You'll receive email confirmation verifying your submission.
  4. If you've requested an AWS or Azure account, you'll receive an email message with additional information and instructions explaining how to submit a purchase request for the service through IU.
  5. Once your purchase order has been processed, IU Purchasing will send it to IU Cloud Technology Support (CTS) and the vendor, copying you.
  6. CTS will work with the vendor to set up your account. Once this process is complete, CTS will send you instructions for accessing your account.
  7. To access your AWS and Azure accounts, log in with your IU username and passphrase through single sign-on (SSO) via CAS or Shibboleth. CTS will assist you in establishing your access, if needed.
Notes:
  • Before you grant any staff members access to an AWS or Azure account, they must also acknowledge and submit the AUA and send you a copy of their confirmation email messages for your records.
  • If you are moving from an individually purchased AWS or Azure cloud account to an account under the IU contract, CTS and the vendor can assist you with account migration.

If you have questions about getting an AWS or Azure account through IU, send mail to Cloud Technology Services.
