Practical examples SURFlichtpaden
SURFlichtpaden enables you to create an exclusive and direct connection outside the boundaries of the public Internet. Light paths offer additional security, reliability, and high capacity – guaranteed. How are light paths used in practice?
Relocation of DIFFER
When energy research institution DIFFER relocated from Nieuwegein to Eindhoven, SURF set up a temporary light path between the old and new location. This led to the creation of 1 internal network, thereby enabling researchers to continue their work undisturbed while the move was taking place.
Data centre outsourcing by The Hague University of Applied Sciences
The Hague University of Applied Sciences has outsourced its data centre. It is important that the capacity, continuity and connection between the data centre and the campus continue to be safeguarded against DDoS attacks and other threats. This is why The Hague University of Applied Sciences opted to take advantage of SURFlichtpaden to create the connection between the data centre and the campus.
Shared data and computing infrastructure for UMCs
Researchers at university medical centres (UMCs) work with huge volumes of data. They want to be able to share this data quickly, safely and easily between centres. Shared data and computing infrastructure plays an important role here. SURF uses light paths to establish a safe network environment that is shielded from the Internet with an endpoint for each UMC.
