Relevance Lab Launches RLCatalyst Research Gateway on AWS Marketplace
Enabling Research Scale, the portal for scientific research on the cloud supports the common vision of researchers “focus on science and not servers”.
Relevance Lab, a Cloud and DevOps company, announced the launch of RLCatalyst Research Gateway, a powerful self-service portal, on AWS Marketplace. Available in both SaaS and Enterprise deployment models, this portal provides 1-click access to a curated catalog of cloud IT services, real-time view of budgets and consumption and features that greatly simplify cost and compliance management.
Cloud computing vendors such as AWS are trying to invest, support, and democratize scientific research needs by offering access to its vast computational power, storage, specialized data tools, and public data sets, collectively referred to as Research IT. However, provisioning and administering these IT services on the cloud are complex and require advance IT skills, presenting a challenge to the research team to consume them effectively. Scientists typically do not want to focus on IT aspects since it deviates from their core activity of conducting research.

RLCatalyst Research Gateway provides scientists and research professionals simplification of cloud adoption while speeding up their research with proper cost & budget controls and secure governance for research programs. The portal is built on AWS and leverages the best practices with underlying integration to AWS Service Catalog, AWS Control Tower, and pre-built support for common AWS researcher tools such as AWS EC2, AWS S3, AWS SageMaker, and AWS Open Data. The SaaS version of the portal provides an easy-to-adopt, self-service capability for research institutions, principal investigators, and researchers. For enterprises with complex and custom needs along with regulatory compliance requirements, an Enterprise version of the portal with managed services is also offered as an option.
Key features of the portal are:
- A pre-existing library of commonly used research products with 1-Click deployment.
- Access to large open data sets on Cloud.
- Well-defined architecture for AWS products deployment based on security and governance aligned with Central IT best practices.
- Integrated tracking of costs and budgets across projects, researchers, and products
- Ability to extend the functionality with domain-specific use cases in Bioinformatics, Earth Sciences, and specialized research domains.
