GÉANT Cloud Services

Supporting cloud collaboration in the research and education community

Cloud services empower users to select and use the services they really want, in an easy and often economically attractive manner.​ ​Research and education organisations can become more agile, facilitating dynamic collaborations between teams and across borders. GÉANT is helping NRENs to deliver cloud services to their communities, with the right conditions of use. It is also engaging with existing NREN brokerages to promote an efficient and coordinated approach, by building on existing experience and supplier relationships. EaPConnect partners participate in these activities and provide cloud services in their countries.

Low latency audio-visual streaming

This data transmission system combined with high-capacity research and education networks allows performing artists to work and perform together in real time, even when they are physically distant from each other, e.g. in different countries.

LoLa was developed by the Italian NREN GARR in collaboration with Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Tartini, Trieste, and has been in use in music schools in Europe, North America and elsewhere for teaching, masterclasses, rehearsals and performances since its first public demonstration in 2010.
