Spinup is coming

January 11, 2018

Spinup Self-Service officially releases as an ITS Service in February. Spinup is a web portal enabling faculty and staff to create on-demand virtual servers, databases, and storage. Users have administrative control of their resources and do their own management.

When ITS releases Spinup in February, the service will allow creation of several popular Amazon AWS resources. ITS plans to enable the creation of additional cloud and on-premises resources via Spinup in the future.

Spinup provides a fast and easy way to create resources. There is no need to learn about cloud specific terminology and processes. Cloud resources are configured for secure, reliable, and convenient use in the Yale environment. ITS forwards cloud provider charges to each user’s Yale billing account (without adding charges).

ITS plans to demo Spinup at meetings of several campus IT communities in the coming weeks.
