Internet2 NET+ AWS Initiative

On March 4, 2024, Four Points was awarded a contract with Internet2, expanding the availability of the NET+ Amazon Web Services (AWS) agreement. The NET+ AWS program began in 2015 and offers cloud services, contracts, and communities made for research and education. Today, more than 75 R&E institutions subscribe to NET+ AWS. Now all U.S. higher education institutions and Internet2 affiliate and federal affiliate members have a new NET+ agreement option as they scale the use of AWS to accelerate science, support teaching and learning, and modernize major IT functions. The NET+ program is powered by a higher education community, which optimizes for:

  • Features & Functionality
  • Technical Integration
  • Security and Compliance
  • Pricing
  • Contract Terms
  • Deployment

The new NET+ AWS agreement with Four Points Technology was selected via a competitive bid process involving community members from several public and private institutions. The agreement offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Direct technical support from AWS
  • Unlimited number of master payer accounts
  • Customer control of master payer root credentials
  • Easy access to NIH STRIDES with increased discounts
  • Programmatic access to billing data for third-party integrations
  • No-cost FinOps reviews and services
  • Discounts on AWS Services (including Marketplace)
