An increasing number of NSF CISE solicitations, including the CISE Core Programs (for which SMALL Projects do not have a submission deadline), are eligible for cloud access via the CloudBank portal to the AWS, Azure, GCP, and IBM clouds.
These clouds offer enormous capacity and rich software stacks. Another plus: access through CloudBank is not subject to indirect cost.
