UW units now can create and manage their own subscriptions to Windows Azure—an open cloud platform for storage, application building, virtual machines and more—at a significant discount (about 30 percent), with usage charged to a UW budget number. This new service is covered by the UW's enterprise HIPAA/FERPA-compliant protected health information contracts with Microsoft. See more information about the Self-Managed Azure Subscription service offered by UW-IT in the UW-IT Service Catalog.
