We know Who does What… Shaping a Cloud Distribution Channel

Cloud services offer higher education and research organisations the opportunity to provide their users with a wider range of relevant IT services at an accelerated pace and to fulfill user demand. The authors of the ASPIRE Summary report (Dec. 2012) see excellent opportunities for NRENs to enhance the quality of cloud offerings and to provide more coherence between them in order to be more beneficial for higher education and research institutions. SURFnet recognized those opportunities already back in 2009 with a vision to enable easy collaboration across organisations, services and countries. This vision resulted in the development of SURFconext, which today is one of SURFnet’s core services.
