Service Delivery on Today’s Campus

See how peer institutions are meeting pressures to deliver better campus services faster, more securely, and more cost-effectively in the cloud.

Six universities discuss the success of tailoring the Box platform through NET+ to drive collaboration on campus and across higher education.

After using Vidyo to connect researchers and students in the Panamanian rainforest, Arizona State University leads development of the NET+ cloud solution for research and education.

Adopting a cloud-first strategy, Morehouse College chooses SkySync for enterprise migration to the Box platform—then sponsors SkySync as a NET+ solution.

Through Internet2, peers created NET+ to speed deployment of campus services in the cloud, maximize efficiencies and minimize the challenges, costs, and risks of cloud migration.

20 years ago, Internet2 was formed by a community of research, academic, and scientific leaders who were instrumental in the development of the Internet we use daily. They had one goal in mind: to create a leading-edge network and technologies that would continually advance research and scholarship.

Today, cloud solutions have become critical to improve operations, reduce costs and increase the speed of service delivery. But, cloud technologies exploded without a voice from higher education in their development. Peers created Internet2 NET+ to apply a proven community model and leverage collective strength in the development and procurement of services and platforms that serve research and education’s unique needs. Through peer-vetted service reviews and specialized agreements with providers, institutions can access leading cloud services—tailored to the unique needs of the academic enterprise.

Popular services like Amazon Web Services, Splunk, Box, and Docusign, are just a sampling of NET+ offerings that have been integrated with core standards, key terms and agreements tailored for research and education institutions.

Chief business and IT leaders at 300 U.S. institutions, are touting the benefits of NET+, which has provided over $280 million in total community benefit since its inception. Through peer collaboration, NET+ is truly shifting the cloud for research and education.
