Support Student Success

Teachers, instructors, districts, universities, and EdTechs have one main goal: develop successful students. The AWS Cloud helps education institutions personalize student-learning experiences, access applications at any time, and improve learning outcomes.

Security & Compliance

The AWS Cloud is built to help even the most security-sensitive institutions meet student data privacy and security requirements. AWS manages many national and international compliance programs, including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Agility & Scalability

AWS enables education institutions to create a customized infrastructure that is more efficient and flexible. Quickly and easily scale up during peak usage times, including enrollment, back-to-school season, and graduation; and scale down over breaks when your server needs are low.

Cost Savings

Reduce costs with the AWS pay-as-you-go model. The ability to scale up and down as traffic changes makes it possible for districts, institutions, EdTechs, and digital learning companies to ramp up their capacity on a temporary basis, at a fraction of the cost.

Case studies

More than 9,000 education customers use the AWS Cloud to lower IT costs, launch student analytic initiatives, and prepare students for STEM careers.
