Our education expertise
Cloud Technology Solutions (CTS) were selected as Google’s partner of choice for all Google Cloud Higher Education engagements across Europe.
Thanks to Google’s new facilitation agreement with GÉANT, CTS can now provide Google resources across the GÉANT network in a easy to process agreement. This agreement enables all the 50 million users at ten thousand institutions across Europe access to Google Cloud Platform (GCP). CTS is Google Cloud’s sole distributor for the Agreement and can offer GÉANT members special agreed educational discounts to access GCP.
Together, the Researchers, Scientists, Educators, IT leaders and 38 National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) in GÉANT can now make Google connections to put their data to work to discover meaningful insights with the potential for global impact. Through the GÉANT Facilitation agreement, GÉANT members can leverage GCP services with benefits including data egress waivers, special educational pricing, single sign-on support through SAML2, negotiated terms of service, and exclusive training and deployment offers.
