dc.description.abstractRecently, the appealing features of cloud computing have been driving its integration into the ICT component of the education sector. In view of this, the NRENS in developed countries are adopting Cloud computing as its technology support and provider of solutions that are very effective in facilitating collaborative research and learning among member institutions. In addition, the developed world opted for this technology because of its flexibility to pay-as-you-go combined with an on-demand scalable model which is changing the NREN computing model and driving them to adopt it. However, very little if nothing has been done particularly the NRENs in the SADC region. It is against this background that NRENs Cloud Infrastructure Framework (NRENs-CLIF) was conceived to build a Cloud computing infrastructure framework suitable for the SADC NRENs. The NRENs-CLIF would build an Inter Cloud Infrastructure system that would envision the transitions every NREN into Cloud system and make them interoperable to each other. The study emphasizes that the SADC NRENs need to join NRENs-CLIF to ensure that resource sharing and collaboration among these NRENs becomes a success.en_US
