Google Cloud Platform is now Available

We are happy to announce the availability of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) as a service from Technology Services.

The service can be used by all faculty, staff, and students, but a CFOP is required to create a GCP project and for billing.

GCP is Google’s set of services and products that offers cloud computing power, servers, storage, databases, networking, analytics, content delivery, and other functionality to help organizations and researchers. GCP can help lower operating costs, run infrastructure more efficiently, and scale as needs change.

For more information, please visit the Technology Services website or contact us at gcp-support@illinois.edu.

Formal communications and promotions of the service will be coming in the next few weeks.
