Cloud computing has become an important part of any IT organisation’s strategy. Until now, there was generally a distinction between on-premises compute, and compute in the cloud. With AWS Outposts, organisations are able to deploy AWS infrastructure to any on-premises or edge location, and run a wide variety of AWS services locally to them, while also accessing other services in their local AWS Region.

Jisc is piloting an Outposts rack in one of its backbone points of presence, to explore potential use cases for both us and our members, and to better understand the technical deployment considerations of this new operational model.

In this session we’ll present an overview of AWS Outposts, the Jisc pilot, and discuss topics including:

  • What are the potential advantages of deploying AWS Outposts directly on Janet?
  • How does Outposts differ from the full AWS Region service?
  • What are the potential use cases for Jisc members and Janet-connected organisations?
