Rapid Access Cloud

A free cloud computing resource for Alberta innovators!

Cybera’s Rapid Access Cloud, an award-winning program, provides free cloud computing resources to Alberta-based academics, researchers, non-profits and small to medium sized organizations that are not covered by the national DAIR program.

It is intended to:

  • Help researchers utilize cloud computing environments for testing, analysis and experimentation
  • Providing a competitive advantage by offering a staging ground to test their ideas for cloud-based services, before moving to a commercial cloud platform
  • Provide a learning environment for people to explore the possibilities and benefits of cloud computing
  • Support disaster recovery for Canadian businesses
