Clouds Are Happening: A 2017 Update on Cloud Service Delivery

Time 04/24/17 03:00PM-04:00PM

Room Meeting Room 5

Session Abstract

Cloud services are becoming core to research and education institution's business. More and more NRENs are now delivering cloud services to their communities, either brokered from commercial (public cloud) suppliers or built and operated by the NRENs (as community cloud offerings).

This session will give you an overview of the current landscape, how cloud service delivery is taking place and the roles NRENs are fulfilling. The presentations will zoom in on concrete opportunities that you can adopt and apply:

  • Internet2 NET+ Cloud Service Delivery Story
  • The cloud collaboration of the European NRENs in GÉANT
  • A collective NREN IaaS tender in GÉANT, which will allow European NRENs to offer these services to their communities.
  • AARNet Cloud Service Delivery Story
