Welcome to the big leagues! We're talking about the comprehensive community-validated portfolio of NET+ cloud services, of course. Consider this your spring training of the season and join us next week at Fast Pitch—an Internet2 Global Summit event where more than 20 Internet2 NET+ service providers will quickly move around the bases, giving you their best pitch—fast—allowing time for you to get your questions answered about their services.

Step up to the plate for this fun baseball-themed event with great snacks and drinks—cloud style. The event takes place Tuesday, April 28 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. in the Congressional Hall of the Renaissance Downtown Washington DC Hotel. Please plan on arriving promptly at 6:30 p.m. if you plan to participate, since once the first pitch is thrown out the event will move quickly.

As the first and second posts in this blog series highlighted, there's a lot going on with the higher ed community and cloud services this year at the Global Summit. The Fast Pitch evening event will give attendees a chance to find out about services they might not be familiar with. Although they will only have a few minutes on the mound, many NET+ service providers are also sponsors of this year’s Global Summit, so there will be plenty of opportunities to follow up and find out more throughout the week.

Now who's ready to see who can hit it out of the park with NET+? The following NET+ service providers are scheduled to participate:

  • 2SMS
