Proact IT Sweden, beside being member company of Big Science Sweden , is Europe’s leading independent data centre and cloud service provider. The company has now entered into a comprehensive framework agreement with OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environments).
Proact will now be able to help the European research community accelerate cloud adoption. Within the agreement, customers may make use of Proact’s infrastructure services and related professional services, such as consultancy, implementation and optimisation.
Members of SUNET, e.g. ESS, MAX IV and EISCAT, are some of the organisations that will be able to buy IT cloud services from a Swedish partner, making it easier to comply with Swedish legislation.
“We are, of course, delighted to be selected as a potential cloud partner at a time when the research and education sectors are looking to accelerate cloud adoption, but still need to adhere to local regulations relating to data location and data sovereignty,” says Danny Duggal, Vice President, Commercial and Communications at Proact IT Group AB.
