Overview of REED

REED is an acronym for "Research Environment for Encumbered Data". REED is designed for use with data whose handling requires compliance with various security protocols, beyond those generally used within an open academic setting.

REED is implemented within Amazon's GovCloud service, and has access portals and control points positioned within Purdue's Research Computing Infrastructure.

Current REED resources use Microsoft Windows Server, accessed through Remote Desktop protocols, and backed with an expandable pool of AWS compute nodes.
