Tailored cloud services for Research & Education Community
Scientiae nubem is built from it’s roots to provide tailored cloud services to Research & Education Community. To do so we’ve implemented technical and legal simplifications for cloud services consumption. From business perspective we offer our clients single contract for consumption of all cloud services and one monthly bill.
EDUZONE platform has unique business approach to simplify consumption of cloud services for Research and Education community. We’ve successfully implemented single sign-on solution to enable all electronic identities available through GEANT eduGAIN service as a central identity authority. All users from all the federations can easily log in to EduZone with their existing electronic identity. With this functionality we’ve raised security level of protection of user accounts and we’ve enabled instant access for entire Research and Education community.
To achieve best usability we’ve analyzed business processes of this community and solved one of the major missing parts of other platforms. Hierarchical delegation functionality enables NRENs and other institutions to share their contractual resources with other institutions and groups of defined users to achieve better cooperation between institutions locally and globally.
EZ-Platform with all its technical advantages combined with legal and billing simplifications provides our clients great user experience and simplifies day to day business procedures.
Edu Zone - Cloud Services Management Platform
EZ-Platform for short is the heart of our solution. It was custom designed and built from scratch to fulfill all of needs that any institution from research and education world might have. We have implemented our solution in a way that is unavailable on other commercial platforms. While designing it we were listening what the users from R&E have to say about other platforms, and implemented most of their recommendations. We continue to listen and to provide solutions. Our platform is like a living organism and evolving every day, so please check often for the content-section coming your way.
One of the strongest parts of our vision what the cloud platform should implement is a hierarchical model through which there might be complex relations between NRENs, Universities and individual users, but implemented in a simple way. That is exactly what we have built in the heart of our platform, and we believe that we have done it in right way, and not as a workaround that some of the commercial vendors are offering to this community as a solution.
The EZ-Platform also provides capability to access all of our services by the means of using existing institutional account through the eduGAIN - the pan-European federation of the R&E identity providers - covering the entire Europe and beyond. All users from any institution participating in eduGAIN can access the system immediately, without further need to open additional accounts.
Our EZ-Platform really follows our motto - Simplify your life.
