About SURFcumulus Application Delivery

SURFcumulus Application Delivery lets users work and study flexibly, regardless of equipment, time and place.

What is SURFcumulus Application Delivery?

SURFcumulus Application Delivery allows students and employees to work or study flexibly and securely via a central portal. Together with the supplier, you set up this portal as you need. It gives access to various applications, independent of time, place and equipment.


Together with five institutions (Inholland, de Haagse Hogeschool, Fontys, Utrecht University and Delft University of Technology), SURF considered how users could make flexible and secure use of institutional applications. From this collaboration, SURFcumulus Application Delivery was developed.

With SURFcumulus Application Delivery, you have access anytime, anywhere, with whatever device you want!

However, the variety of devices, browsers and operating systems remain a challenge for ICT departments at institutions. SURFcumulus Application Delivery offers a solution: users work or study safely and flexibly, always, everywhere and with all devices!
