A community public-private model for cloud services for Academy to be extended to SMEs: interview with José Luiz Ribeiro Filho, Director of Services and Solutions of RNP

To keep up with a growing demand from it’s network of users RNP has turned to a hybrid, community and federated cloud to supply its services. José Luiz Ribeiro Filho who is Director of Services and Solutions RNP explains more about this choice.

To keep up with a growing demand from it’s network of users RNP, the Brazilian NREN, (Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa), has turned to a hybrid, community and federated cloud to supply its services. The hybrid model allows RNP to act as a public (commercial) contract broker for “low risk” services, such as student e-mail, document sharing, etc. Through the community model, universities and research institutes can offer their own data centre infrastructure either fully or partially, to the national cloud. Besides this, RNP is comparing public/commercial cloud services, business models, pricing and contract clauses so that they can start a pilot which will assess the broker role, as planned for the hybrid model.
We spoke to José Luiz Ribeiro Filho, Director of Services and Solutions RNP to find out more about this choice.
