Research Service Workbench on AWS

Build self-service portals for research institutions and empower rapid experimentation


Research Service Workbench on AWS (RSW) is an AWS Solution designed for research IT departments and their administrators to create a self-service portal for secure research environments, without requiring knowledge about cloud administration or security. It includes the necessary functionality to create research workspaces, connect to data, and control access to AWS resources. With the provided APIs, administrators can establish users, projects, and data sources. The administrators can also create the available environments (including tools and compute resources), data sources, and can assign researchers and resources to defined projects. AWS Partners can use the APIs to swiftly develop a self-service portal for researchers.
