Driving Frictionless Scientific Research
on AWS Cloud
Solution for Universities and Research Institutions to use Self-Service Cloud leveraging RLCatalyst Research Gateway
Scientific Research is enabling new innovations and discoveries in multiple fields to make human life better. There are large and complex programs funded by governments, public sector and private organizations. Every higher education institution and universities globally have specialized focus on Research Programs. The need to drive frictionless research across geographies requires ability to focus on Science while addressing the specific needs of People-Programs-Resources interactions. Leveraging Open Data repositories (e.g. Open Data on AWS) is also a key need for intramural and extramural collaboration in this segment.
The scientific research community of researchers and principal investigators need a solution that helps them focus on science and not to worry about infrastructure, security, data privacy, collaboration, and governance. The IT teams of Universities and Research Organizations want to provide Self-Service Access to the scientific research community with appropriate controls on budget tracking, approved assets consumption and secure data analysis. The solution needs to be cost effective, easy to deploy and flexible to fit with existing setups.

Key Features of the Solution
RL Catalyst Research Gateway is a self-service Cloud portal solution allowing researchers to focus on scientific outcomes and making the process of accessing infrastructure, applications and data in a frictionless manner. The solution can be rapidly deployed to meet specific requirements of universities and research institutions to get started using existing Cloud accounts. The portal provides a rich list of features tailor made for the research community.
  • Setting up projects, service catalogs, budgets and researchers.

  • Publish & maintain service catalogs of AWS services.

  • View Study data from private and public sources and use that for building analytics models leveraging AI/ML tools.

  • Easy launch and intelligent interaction with AWS services.

  • Budget tracking & cost optimization of launched AWS services.

  • Deployment and provisioning of launched AWS services within a well-architected and secure AWS environment.

Getting Started
There are simple ways to get started.
  • Get an Organization created in our Hosted AWS Cloud RLCatalyst Research Gateway.

  • Setup your AWS Account and sync up your standard AWS Service Catalog Items (dynamic 1-Click sync allowed), configure Budget and enable Researchers for Projects.

  • Researchers can log-in and order any standard AWS Asset (EC2, Sagemaker, S3, Workspace etc) with 1-Click and start doing their Research with complete visibility on active products, budget consumption and ability to manage work from single console.

  • Principal Investigators can have a close view on budget governance and project tracking with secure and simple self service workflows.

Entire setup can be completed quickly with minimum training and an elegant user experience. The solution can be integrated with existing IT Governance practices saving a lot of manual work and effective tracking.

Summary
For any university or research institution looking for an easy cloud based solution to move in-house scientific research process to a mature platform RLCatalyst Research Gateway is a great fit. The core solution is offered in two flexible models - Hosted Option (SAAS) or customer self-managed deployment (in their AWS Instance). The solution is built on an Open Source platform with enterprise support options available that help avoid proprietary solution lock-in. Customers looking for standard features usually prefer the Hosted Option. Others requiring customisation and integration with existing systems, unique security and data privacy needs prefer a self-managed option.
