GARR, What we have, What We Offer, Network, Cloud

In addition to offering its own cloud infrastructure devoted to the research and education community, GARR makes available to its users access to the OCRE Cloud framework, a set of European framework agreements for the simplified procurement of commercial cloud services in IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as service) modes.

The OCRE cloud framework is designed to facilitate the use of the cloud in those situations where it is not possible or convenient to use in-house or dedicated solutions, such as the GARR cloud, for one's cloud computing needs, or when additional resources are required (e.g. to absorb computing peaks).
Purchasing public cloud services can be a complex and time-consuming process. The OCRE Cloud Framework aims to simplify these processes by offering the research and education community a portfolio of cloud suppliers across Europe and ready-to-use service agreements.

The framework, created by the European OCRE (Open Clouds for Research Environments, 2020-2024) project consortium led by GÉANT, builds on GÉANT's previous IaaS framework, and offers a wider range of services, enabling access to commercial digital services for research activities.

How to access the services

The framework is open to higher education institutions, universities and research organisations that are part of the GARR network.
In order to simplify the process of service selection and purchase, OCRE has published a Catalogue where users can navigate a map of Europe showing the services are available in each country. Each service is presented through a tab that includes a link to detailed information about the platform and a contact email address that can be used to request an offer.

The role of GARR

GARR, as the National Research & Education Network (NREN), acts as a referrer between its community and the OCRE cloud framework, making the framework agreements available in Italy to the institutions that are part of its community.

GARR, however, has no involvement in the relationships between users and providers and does not carry out specific communication and promotion activities of the services made available to users of the Italian research and education community by OCRE providers. All information actions and interactions must take place directly between users and suppliers.

It should be noted that OCRE is a four-year European project, which started on 1 December 2020 and the framework will remain valid until the end of the project, i.e. until 30 November 2024. Furthermore, contracts can only be concluded in English.

The list of OCRE suppliers for Italy can be consulted on the project website and for further information and support please write to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

GARR, What we do, What we have, To Know Us, What We Offer, Network

The GARR Network and its services are dedicated to the Italian Research and Education Community. Currently, around 1200 sites, including research and documentation centers, universities, observatories, laboratories, libraries, museums and other infrastructures, for a total of over 4,000,000 end users, are connected to the GARR Network. Thanks to the collaboration of the APM (Access Port Manager) of all the sites connected to the network, it is possible to make available to users who work in the various institutions the services provided by GARR.

This vast community is destined to widen again, thanks to the interconnection of new structures belonging to the world of Research, Education and Culture, Schools, Academies of Art and Museums.

Below is a list of the structures connected to the GARR Network.

GARR, What we do, To Know Us, Communities, GARRNews

GARR NEWS is the bi-annual magazine dedicated to the GARR community and was created with the aim of creating a direct channel between GARR and its users.

Besides being a great opportunity to talk about new services offered and to take stock of situation of the network and its use, GARR NEWS has in fact the purpose of giving voice to those who daily use the network. Users themselves will have the opportunity to talk about innovative experiences and to play therefore an increasingly active role in the dissemination of applications in the GARR community, proposing those experiences as examples of excellence to be followed.
