Regional Networks Go Above the Net

Time 10/04/12 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

Above-the-net services are becoming more important to regional networks (and their members) as the network infrastructure itselfbecomes more accessible. In this panel we will look at approaches to above-the-net services from the perspective of three RONs: in New Jersey (NJEDge and NJIT), in Michigan (MERIT), and in Pennsylvania (KINBER).



NJEDge and NJIT use VMware's vCloud Director to enable the on-demand provisioning of Infrastructure-as-a-Service to New Jersey educational institutions for disaster recovery and other applications. Merit will talk about hybrid cloud solutions, including MeritVirtualDataCenters and Cloud Storage hosted infrastructure services, and some strategic and tactical steps you might take in developing cloud services. KINBER will explain how its member services survey is being used to leverage existing above-the-net services offered by its members and to develop new offerings.
