SA NREN Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs) pilot

Last year we issued a call asking “Can we help you move your data sets?” to find potential use cases for our new data transfer service (see flyer).

We have since set up three Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs) in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria that are now available to the South African Research and Education community to assist in data transfer movement nationally and internationally as a pilot project on a trial basis.

If you would like to know more about this project, make use of these DTNs to transfer large datasets to and from your institution or know of a project that could benefit from utilising this service, please email

For those that already completed our investigation survey, thank you for doing so, as this helped us motivate for the pilot project. Please do reach out to us again if you are still interested.
