GÉANT and CERNET (Chinese NREN) sign MoU to strengthen ICT collaboration at EU-China. Over 80 million researchers, academics and students across Europe and China are set to benefit from a new 10Gbps research and education (R&E) internet link.
The Portuguese Internet eXchange Point, promoted and managed by FCCN, celebrates 20 years of existence. The continued use of GigaPix over the past two decades and the extreme importance of the role it plays to the Internet in Portugal shows that it is a fundamental pillar of the national Information Society.
The GÉANT cloud activity has engaged extensively with cloud service providers regarding the needs of the European research and education community. One tangible result of this is an online cloud services directory, the GÉANT cloud catalogue.
