File Migration Project
Cloudfiles is no longer providing added value over what Microsoft Office 365 (O365) can do, and as an onsite solution it requires substantial costs each year in maintenance, licensing, and hardware upgrades. Furthermore, as a Faculty we are unable to provide the storage capacity that the campus as a whole can share.
We have completed extensive testing to ensure that O365 can provide you with the same or better level of service as Cloudfiles.
