Cloud Services & Applications

Our portfolio of cloud services leverages the network's capabilities and includes a range of innovative solutions for data storage and sharing, video conferencing, unified communications and roaming.

We collaborate with our global research network partners and a large number of content and service providers to deliver cost-effective access to a wide range of cloud-based resources. AARNet's approach is to:

Peer with organisations such as Microsoft, YouTube, Google, Akamai and Amazon Web Services, making content from these entities on-net.

Connect directly with technology companies such as Blackboard, Desire2Learn, Netspot (Moodle) and Ricoh, so that our customers have high-performing on-net access to learning management systems and other cloud services providers.

Partner with vendors such as Box, Panopto and Zoom, to customise enterprise products and services for Australia's research and education community, making them easy for IT managers to deploy and manage. 

Build services, such as the AARNet Mirror, CloudStor and Eduroam, to meet the particular needs of the global research and education community.  

Services are offered to customers under the AARNet+ program, a standard process for the evaluation, integration and ongoing use of cloud services.

AARNet+ aims to make it easy for the research and education community to connect to cloud services and benefit from large scale shared services.
