Whether in Research, Teaching and Learning or Central IT, this free event is an opportunity to understand what the AWS Cloud offers to address the requirements of the Higher-Education community. This event is designed to help you understand how the AWS Infrastructure and Operational practices can help you meet your strategic IT challenges.

In the afternoon, we will break into two more focused tracks, where you can learn more about IT operations and services or choose the Research track where you will be working hands-on to open an AWS account and start using the AWS console with public data sets. In both cases you will have the opportunity to delve deeper into technical questions with the AWS Cloud experts.

Learn about best practices for deploying applications on AWS, optimising performance, monitoring cloud resources, driving efficiencies, reducing costs, and more. Whether it's big data, high performance computing (HPC), machine learning, or analysing live data, you will also have opportunities to meet AWS staff to have your technical and security questions answered.
