Overview of REED GovCloud

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

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

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

REED GovCloud will be going away soon and its services and users will be migrated to Weber. If your current or proposed project require REED GovCloud, please contact the Export Control Office to discuss your options.
