Cloud for education

Cloud scalability and elasticity and the IaaS, BRaaS and DRaaS service models are a perfect fit for addressing the current trends and challenges in education. 

Cloud services allow schools and universities to cost-effectively upgrade admin, communication and learning systems without huge capital investments in IT infrastructure.

The education sector faces the challenge of managing and gaining insight from massive and growing data—from student and faculty information to sophisticated research analytics. Moreover, this data requires high levels of security in order to meet both privacy and intellectual property requirements. Cloud deployments have proven very effective in meeting and exceeding these needs.

Cost Savings

Cloud helps to move the IT infrastructure out of the school buildings. With this move, many of the costs associated with supporting on-premise servers, applications and data are vastly reduced.

All servers maintenance, IT upgrades and data storage costs can be managed more effectively and at lower costs. Moreover, software as a service (SaaS), backup as a service (BRaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) can be paid for as needed and actually used.

Backup & Storage

The cloud allows schools to backup their data easily. In case of any hardware or humans errors data stored in the cloud can be accessed easily and quickly.

Educational organisations have a lot of important and valuable data. Losing this data can be a major disaster. Therefore, having a cloud backup can prove to be invaluable in the event of an error or disaster.


Bring your own device (BYOD) is becoming a vital element of the education sector. The convenience of wireless devices the cloud enables to collaborate and work on projects more efficiently. Teachers can share their plans between themselves. This allows for greater engagement and enhanced productivity.
