A wide range of cloud services now available to governments and public services

Published on Thu, 04/06/2023 - 14:09

Governments and public services connected to Belnet can now benefit from the OCRE Cloud Catalogue. This agreement allows your organisation to access different Cloud solution offerings (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS...) from a range of vendors and service providers.

Access a wide choice of commercial cloud services

Your organisation benefits from simplified and secure access to a wide range of commercial cloud platforms and services via the OCRE framework agreement coordinated by GÉANT. This framework agreement is beneficial in many ways, as it relieves organisations using it of much of the procurement work. There is no longer any need for a separate tender and the ready-to-use contracts comply with EU data protection law. It also allows organisations to benefit from customised cloud solutions while enjoying volume discounts, discounts on support and egress waivers.

Browse the full catalogue for Belgium

Via the catalogue we provide you with access to more detailed information for each platform available in Belgium.
The complete offer for Belgium currently includes Bechtle (Azure and Ionos), SoftwareONE (IBM), Sparkle (GCP), Rackspace (AWS), Safespring, CloudSigma, CloudFerro, T-Systems (Open Telecom Cloud), Setcor, Quistor (Oracle), Orange (Business Services) and VSHN (Exoscale).

What is Belnet's role?

Within the framework agreement coordinated by GÉANT, Belnet takes on the role of referrer. This means that Belnet acts as an intermediary by making the framework agreements available in Belgium and facilitating the purchases of the connected institutions from the suppliers. As a referrer, Belnet receives starting July 2023 a 3% commission on the volume purchased by each organisation. However, the contractual relationship is between the organisation connected to Belnet and the supplier, there is no contract with Belnet.
