The Georgian agency for weather forecast and climate change studies will use cloud infrastructure that was established with the support of the EU-funded EaPConnect project, announces EaPConnect.

Cooperation between the Georgian Research and Educational Networking Association (GRENA), and the country’s National Environmental Agency will provide the agency with cloud resources that include 24 core, 64 GB RAM, 10 TB storage and IT support.
