College of the Ozarks Takes Advantage of MOREnet Connection Benefits

  • Published: Monday, Jan. 7, 2019

One of the advantages of having a MOREnet internet connection is our membership with the Great Plains Network (GPN), making our members eligible for Internet2 services. This relationship provides opportunities to take advantage of partner programs not offered by any other ISP.

Earlier this spring, College of the Ozarks reached out to MOREnet as they were interested in adopting cloud computing technologies and moving local services to Amazon Web Services (AWS). After learning their goals and objectives, we suggested they consider participating in a pilot project with Internet2 and other partners to create an AWS program specifically tailored to the needs of the non-profit research and education community.

The Internet2 service in partnership with NET+ and AWS is intended to provide a better path for institutions to speed adoption of AWS and remove many of the barriers that have stood in the way of enterprise deployment. The intent is to substantially improve data transfers to and from the AWS cloud, including data transport waivers that allow scholars and scientists to scale their work and push limits with computing and analysis.
