Internet2 Cloud Strategy

Time 05/08/18 01:30PM-02:45PM

Room Pacific 16-17

Session Abstract

Internet2's cloud-support approach includes integrated work across the entire Internet2 portfolio, with specific deliverables across our cloud services, network, and trust & identity activities and an intent to deliver a more comprehensive and eventually a full feature set of community and commercial cloud support activities. This cloud-support strategy is to address the needs of researchers and the academic enterprise in the use and adoption of cloud.

The session will include:

• an overview of the Internet2 cloud strategy
• a discussion about the current direction for NET+ services
• an explanation of Grants and Credits available from cloud providers such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google for researchers
• a guide to the Internet2 resources for the cloud offerings
• a description of Cloud Access, which is the combination of
Cloud Exchange allowing community members to take advantage of the peering that has been established with cloud service providers who work closely with the research and education community
and Cloud Connect allowing community members to leverage national and regional infrastructures to extend their network for direct connections to three cloud providers including Microsoft Azure Express Route, Amazon Web Services Direct Connect and Google Cloud Platform Dedicated Interconnect.
• a community update on the Cloud Research effort.

The session will allow ample time for discussion and questions.
