Eligibility

This is an GÉANT framework available to HEAnet, its member institutions and consumers of its services.

Services Available under Framework

Thanks to a pan-European collaboration with GÉANT, the 2020 IaaS+ Framework covers Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and complementary Software as Service (SaaS). The framework offers a range of attractive IaaS cloud computing solutions, tailor-made and priced, for academia. A pan-European tender was conducted for 40 countries, with GÉANT acting as the central purchasing body on behalf of the NRENs and their member institutes.

The expanded IaaS framework will help accelerate cloud service adoption and is part of the larger Open Clouds for Research Environments (OCRE) project. This OCRE iteration has expanded its scope to include PaaS and complementary SaaS. The framework will enable education and research organisations to find the cloud-based tools that best fit their needs by providing a direct purchasing route.

The services available through the framework include but are not limited to the following:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Blockchain
  • Compute
