EUDATThe EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure (or CDI) consists of a network of nodes that provide a range of services for for upload and retrieval, identification and description, movement, replication and data integrity, plus some additional services that are needed to operate the infrastructure. The nodes are essentially data centres (or computer centres) that have a data repository and that provide software services to manage the stored data – for example, storing data, searching for data, or adding metadata to the data. In an EUDAT context, these centres are known as service providers. A data centre that (primarily) serves a specific research discipline (like DKRZ, the German Climate Computing Centre, which supports climate research) is known as a thematic service provider, while a centre that provides services for different research communities (such as the CSC-IT Center for Science in Finland, which supports research in a wide range of areas) is known as a generic service provider. <Many of the largest scientific data centres within Europe are service providers within the context of EUDAT at eudat euEUDAT Inventory Entry

It forms part of a comprehensive South African government approach to cyberinfrastructure, geared at ensuring the successful participation of South African researchers in the global knowledge production endeavour.

TENET's main purpose is to secure, for the benefit of South African universities and associated research and support institutions, Internet and Information Technology services. TENET is a service organisation and is committed to service excellence and to services that are strongly aligned and consistent with the organisational requirements of the user community. TENET operates the SANReN Network under the terms of a Collaboration Agreement with the CSIR.

Example Inventory Entry

  • No labels


  1. I entered some info, maybe it is to much Markering & communication speak?

  2. Will we put more contact information here? Like a general contact for security issues? It can take some time  to find that on a companies website.

  3. Should we not include constituency information here (e.g. AS numbers, domains/IPs)? - IMO that will be very useful for ISOs.

    e.g. SA NREN > AS2018,

  4. Feel free to cut down the description of ACOnet, I basically copy&pasted our web site – no intention of spamming (smile)
