Setting new standards for universities in the cloud – Case Study
Perth’s Edith Cowan University became the first Australian university to move its entire IT infrastructure to the cloud
Edith Cowan University (ECU) is an open and vibrant public university with around 23,000 students. It’s based in Perth, Western Australia – one of the remotest cities in the world. In a highly competitive market and with an ambitious vision for growth, ECU’s leadership team saw the huge potential of digital technologies. Today’s students naturally expect access to digital tools and content.
With the need for a more agile, high-performing and cost-efficient digital infrastructure, ECU knew that cloud adoption was essential. The Board’s vision was bold: to move the university’s entire data center infrastructure to the cloud as early as possible.
Atos worked closely with ECU to achieve a smooth and seamless transition and transformation of ECU’s entire IT infrastructure to a new secure Managed Hybrid (multi-tenant) Cloud environment.
