Rapid Access Cloud

A free cloud computing resource for Alberta Educators.

Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud is an award-winning resource that provides free cloud computing resources to Alberta-based academics for classroom and project use.

Benefits

Rapid Access Cloud comes with many benefits for the classroom, including:

  • Flexible Resource quotas
  • Allocated resources have an adjustable length of time*

*In some cases, we may ask classes to be broken into groups to help conserve resources, especially IPv4 addresses, which we have a very limited supply of.

Getting Started

Interested educators just need to contact us a minimum of two weeks before the start of their class. We just need to know:

  • Class Size
  • Class Start Date
  • Amount of computing resources (CPUs, RAM) each student or group requires
  • If your institution is IPv6 enabled (find out here)
  • Any other relevant details about the class
