Cloud Computing Support

The Research IT Cloud Computing Support Program welcomes Berkeley faculty, staff, postdocs, and grad students at all levels of expertise to schedule time with our computing consultants, even at the very earliest stages of your research, for any size computational requirements you may have. Our standard consulting services are free of charge. We offer consulting assistance, documentation, and tools to help campus researchers obtain access to and effectively use cloud computing resources and can help you:

  • Determine if the cloud is a good fit for your computational requirements

  • Plan for and manage costs of cloud computing

  • Gain access to cloud computing resources, both for research and research-related instruction

You can contact us by sending an email to the following address:
