MIT Cloud Accounts

IS&T manages MIT's enterprise agreements with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. By obtaining and managing accounts for these cloud computing platforms through IS&T, MIT community members simplify their billing while gaining access to a higher level of technical support than is otherwise available to individual customers. The MIT Cloud Accounts portal provides community members with an easy way to request and manage AWS, GCP, and Azure accounts, while providing helpful reporting on billing and usage.

Virtual Computer Labs

Virtual Computer Labs are available to faculty, instructors, and Department, Lab, and Center (DLC) IT support providers for deployment as virtual Athena Ubuntu 18.0.4 or Windows 10 machines for an MIT class of up to 100 students for the duration of a single academic term.

NOTE: This service is in beta. Virtual Labs will be provisioned on a first come first served basis. During this beta period, IS&T may not be able to accommodate all requests immediately if demand exceeds expectations. Windows Domain is an IS&T centrally-maintained Microsoft Windows domain intended for general use by all of MIT. It provides a common set of services, data, and tools. Many aspects and features within this domain are customizable by participating Departments, Labs, and Centers (DLCs) and, in certain cases, individual users.

Server Co-location

IS&T Data Centers provide MIT departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) an environmentally secure location for housing your servers and related equipment. Your servers will be provided with rack space, power, cooling, and network connectivity.

Managed Servers

IS&T provides a full service operation for departments, labs, and centers (DLCs) who require system administration and management for web servers and small databases. IS&T does not provide research computing solutions through the Managed Server program.

Roles and Authorizations

The Roles Database stores access rules (user authorizations) for applications like SAP, Data Warehouse, and the Graduate Admissions System, among others. Specially Authorized Departmental and Central Administrators use the web-based Roles Database application to view and manage user authorizations.
