Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides virtualized computing resources over the cloud. IaaS platforms offer highly scalable resources that can be adjusted on-demand and are ideal for academic research characterised by workloads that are temporary, experimental or subject to unexpected change. For NRENs and constituent institutions, GÉANT IaaS framework agreement offers considerable benefits; including discounts, egress waivers, pre-agreed terms and conditions, and GÉANT cloud team support. NRENs can act as brokers for third-party providers that host hardware, software, servers, storage and other infrastructure components on behalf of users. Or NRENs may decide to build infrastructure and make it available over the cloud to users.

To get an overview of the services and their capabilities, see the IaaS service matrix (requires login).
