Amazon's cloud computing platform Amazon Web Services teamed up with the National Institutes of Health's research initiative to connect biomedical researchers and their work through cloud computing, the NIH announced Oct. 23.

Here are three things to know:

1. Amazon Web Services joined the NIH's Science and Technology Research Infrastructure for Discovery, Experimentation, and Sustainability Initiative, or STRIDES, which launched in July.

2. The goal of the collaboration is to help NIH researchers connect with their colleagues across more than 2,500 academic institutions receiving NIH support and integrate AWS' range of technologies and cloud computing capabilities.

"Teaming with Amazon Web Services will give NIH researchers powerful cloud-based resources to more efficiently collaborate and analyze data," said Andrea T. Norris, NIH CIO and director of NIH's Center for Information Technology. "AWS's longstanding leadership in the cloud space will help bolster the innovative research being conducted through NIH support."

3. STRIDES is part of the NIH's New Models of Data Stewardship Program, which was created to enhance biomedical research and discovery, and make that data findable, accessible and reusable through the cloud.
