Thanks to the launch of the OCRE Cloud Framework & Catalogue project, GÉANT is favouring the research sector in Europe by facilitating access to a large selection of commercial Cloud services. The complete offer has been available since 29 January.
The OCRE project (Open Clouds for Research Environments) coordinated by GÉANT has just announced the awarding of 473 OCRE IaaS + framework agreements. At the national level, this news is an undeniable boost for all organizations connected to Belnet (R&E but also public services and federal institutions) because they can now benefit from simplified and secure access to a large choice of commercial cloud platforms and services.
Thanks to the use of new funding solutions, it allows research institutions to easily take advantage of personalised digital solutions and benefit from reductions on large volumes. In short, a very advantageous project that we are happy to make available to our community.
