UIT Strategic Cloud Vendor List

If you are looking for a cloud solution vendor, review the University IT list of strategic vendors to see if they can meet your needs. These vendors have existing relationships with Stanford and provide products that we value.

Our strategic vendors are characterized by an emphasis on collaborative sharing of strategic direction and roadmap. In some cases, they are willing to co-develop or co-design new services or use cases, and have adapted their stock product capability to meet the unique needs of higher education. Strategic vendors provide Stanford value over time by helping to achieve long-term goals.  

The existence of a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) with a vendor demonstrates a commitment to partnering to protect the University's data. Vendors without a BAA cannot be used for any storage or access of Protected Health Information (PHI).

Strategic vendors for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provide different advantages than strategic vendors for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). To learn more, see the Business Considerations section of SaaS Considerations and PaaS Considerations.
