The Spinup data enclave is a platform for Yale’s researchers and community members to store and manage research data and provision secure compute with automatic access to the data.

Shared Management

You know your data. We know the cloud.

We’ve built an effective platform for you to store and manage purchased, downloaded or machine-generated data sets. We help you manage the original data, derivatives and any data use agreements (DUAs). You’re responsible for sticking to the shared responsibility model and doing your research.

Simple and Secure

Because the Data Enclave is integrated into Spinup, it’s simple to provision secure compute along side your data and automatically grant access.

Data sets managed through the Data Enclave are encrypted at rest and in transit. Access is tightly controlled and extensive audit logging is enabled.


The Spinup data enclave supports moderate and high risk data sets, with NIST 800-171 and CUI support coming soon!

No Limits

Storage that grows with your data and scalable compute provisioned on-demand make the Spinup data enclave a excellent place to do your research.

Example Workflow

The Spinup data enclave is a flexible platform, this is an example workflow where original data is uploaded to the cloud, the original data set is finalized and then accessed from secure compute. The output of the computation is optionally written to a derivative data set that carries metadata linking it to the original. The derivative data set is then optionally promoted into a new original.
