Apr 21, 2015, by Andrew Keating
Tags: 2015 Global Summit, Initiative, Internet2 NET+

Through the Internet2 NET+ Initiative, the research and education community has developed a comprehensive portfolio of customized cloud services along with a validation and subscription process that enables the community to work together in a new way. The 2015 Internet2 Global Summit will include comprehensive coverage of the community's cloud-service-related efforts, including updates from campuses deploying cloud services, information on the latest developments in the NET+ initiative, and statuses of all current and prospective NET+ services. Numerous opportunities exist to learn about NET+ services, to learn how community members are integrating their cloud services with campus infrastructure, and more.

Highlighted below in this first of three posts on the "cloud services" track at the 2015 Internet2 Global Summit including presentations from community members on cloud service deployment, cloud strategy, experiences with cloud services, and more. Security, identity, and compliance topics feature prominently in several sessions, as does the development of campus cloud deployment strategies and the ability to assess the risks and benefits of moving to the cloud and the total cost of ownership of cloud services.
