Microsoft and the NSF Offer Cloud Capacity

Microsoft and the National Science Foundation (NSF) will provide free access to advanced cloud computing resources to qualified researchers and research groups selected through NSF's merit review process. Microsoft will provide cloud computing research projects identified by NSF with access to Windows Azure for a three-year period, along with a support team to help researchers quickly integrate cloud technology into their research. Projects will be awarded and managed by NSF.

Windows Azure provides on-demand compute and storage to host, scale and manage Web applications on the Internet through Microsoft datacenters.
