As Cloud Specialists we pride ourselves on delivering critical education cloud services to schools across the UK, helping them reduce their IT Total Cost of Ownership, and deliver more flexible and secure access to school data.
Cloud technologies offer multiple benefits to schools, including substantial cost savings and are applicable to multiple areas of IT. Ranging from industry standard centralised user & device management, to email services, data storage & collaboration, MIS services, backup services and telecommunications. The list goes on!
Implementing cloud-based solutions will enable institutions to reduce expenses associated with maintaining costly on-site hardware and software infrastructure. Subsequently, schools can divert these monetary resources to other essential areas that will benefit students. Furthermore, schools can take advantage of monthly cloud services, that allow for flexible adjustment in costs per month/year, instead of significant capital investments.
Cloud technologies can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of a school’s IT infrastructure in several ways. First, by shifting the majority of the IT workloads to the cloud, the school can eliminate the need for in-house IT hardware such as servers, switches, and routers. This, in turn, reduces the energy consumption of the school’s IT infrastructure, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Second, cloud-based applications and services often consume less energy than traditional software applications and services. For example, cloud-based email services require less energy to operate and maintain than locally hosted email servers.
Lastly, cloud technologies enable more efficient use of computing resources. Cloud providers leverage advanced technologies to optimise their data centres, making them more energy-efficient and reducing the overall carbon footprint of the school’s IT infrastructure.
Overall, by leveraging cloud technologies, schools can significantly reduce their carbon footprint, while still providing their students and staff with the required IT infrastructure and services.
