The service is geared toward technical staff with command-line and container experience who want:
- The advantages of a container orchestration system like auto-scaling and infrastructure-as-code
- An open development environment they can maintain
- Freedom from server and operating system maintenance
- The flexibility to deploy only the resources currently needed
- To run workloads in the cloud with ready access to campus resources like Shibboleth, MiServer, and Data Warehouse
The service is available to U-M units, faculty, staff, and student groups on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses and within Michigan Medicine. A Shortcode is required for billing.
