RENU has an open source mirror, where institutions connected to the RENU network can locally pick various applications, operating system updates, and patches. This helps member institutions to save on their already limited but "over-utilized" international bandwidth.

When the factors at play were weighed i.e. costs, location of the cloud services and the legal implications of storing biometric data, it was obvious that RENU Cloud would offer a much better alternative.
