Internet2 NET+ Amazon Web Services by DLT
Advanced cloud technologies are key to transforming higher education and leading research institutions. Moving to the cloud isn’t just an IT issue, leaders need strong processes and technical standards to provide for broad and rapidly growing user needs. To address these needs, Internet2® has partnered with DLT Solutions to provide higher education campuses with a custom program to access Amazon Web Services (AWS) via the Internet2 NET+ initiative. This enables institutions to acquire a secure and reliable platform to meet demands, and provide an entire portfolio of trusted cloud solutions at scale.
The NET+ AWS by DLT program provides key enhancements to the standard AWS terms, currently offered to higher education and research communities, to support enterprise usage and broad adoption across campus, as well as easier procurement. Universities can quickly and easily access the scale of the cloud while avoiding many of the inherent – and time-consuming – hurdles associated with procuring this technology.
