More than IaaS: Academic Cloud Services for Researchers

SWITCH as the Swiss NREN has been extending its service portfolio since 1987. Starting out from network connectivity, collaboration services and AAI completed the portfolio. In 2014, SWITCH set out to become a provider for computing and storage infrastructure on a cloud platform. On top of this platform we operate a national service for file sync and share (SWITCHdrive). The compute and storage infrastructure itself is also offered as a national service in as an infrastructure as a service called SWITCHengines. The next step we are working on in a project called SCALE-UP is to offer cloud services for the academic community. The presentation will give an overview and the current state of development of the project.
