Cloud credits offered in NSF big data fundingBy GCN Staff Mar 20, 2017
To spur research in big data management, modeling and analysis, the National Science Foundation — in partnership with Amazon Web Services Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure — is offering up to $3 million in cloud credits/resources along with funding for projects that can justify the need for significant storage and computational resources under NSF’s BIGDATA program, the science agency said.
A 70-30 split in funding between the requested NSF funds and the cloud resources is required. If a project requests $700,000 in NSF funds, for example, then it may request up to a maximum of $300,000 in cloud credits/resources.
NSF advises applications that, when estimating for cloud resources, they should account for software development and testing; code inefficiencies and errors that may consume more resources than anticipated; and additional experiments beyond those initially anticipated.
