According to SURFcumulus, the future of educational institutions in the Netherlands lies in the cloud. From management to direction: educational institutions can make flexible use of cloud services, and combine them with their own limited ICT infrastructures.
Switching to the cloud is not an easy step. Innovations follow one another in rapid succession. The supply is becoming increasingly complex and the differences between providers less clear. Moreover, these services are being developed further and further. In addition, users often have different wishes and needs and a single cloud solution is often not a structural solution. That is why SURFcumulus, together with our European partners, wants to put cloud services out to tender centrally. In this way, knowledge and expertise are combined.
SURFcumulus started with 6 universities of applied sciences in 2016. This number has now grown to 104 institutions from all sectors. In 2019, they spent a total of 10 million euros on public providers. In this way, SURFcumulus is responding to the demand for cloud services and relieving its institutions of the burden.
