MidwayR is part of the University of Chicago’s Secure Data Enclave. It provides a secure computing environment to support research that has higher security standard requirements. The MidwayR computing and storage environment is similar to the RCC’s Midway but is equipped with tools and software needed to meet the highest levels of secure data protection.

How to use MidwayR

Getting Started

MidwayR uses UChicago CNetID to authenticate users. Similar to Midway, there are two types of accounts: Principal Investigator (PI) accounts and general user accounts. However, the process to get an account on MidwayR is different from that on Midway.

Accessing MidwayR

Accessing MidwayR is a two-step process: First: Login to Secure Data Enclave (SDE) Desktop using the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) client. Second: Once you are connected to the SDE Desktop, login to MidwayR using an SSH client.

Disconnecting from MidwayR

Once you are done using MidwayR, be sure to logout of your session. Like connecting, disconnecting is a two-step process: first, run exit in PuTTY to log out of MidwayR; second, logout from the SDE environment by selecting “Sign out” from the Windows Start Menu.


Provides Security and Privacy Protection

The environment protects the integrity of sensitive data by complying with best-in-class storage standards. It meets the same security requirements as The University of Chicago Medicine, which already adheres to rigorous data security standards.

Allows for Custom Analytical Software

The service is flexible so you can add the analytics software you prefer for your research.

Removes Data Compliance Obligations from the Researcher

The Secure Data Enclave transfers the security obligations of data management and storage from the researcher to the University while complying with legal and contractual standards.

Managed by University IT Professionals

The MidwayR is professionally managed and operated by  RCC staff. This allows you to focus on research and analysis and avoid the expensive and time-consuming process of building and operating a secure environment.

Offers Collaboration with RCC

RCC’s computational scientists are available to provide their expertise and help you unlock new ways to analyze the data.

Reduces Data Security Risks

The service reduces data security risks for researchers and the University.
