Why Cloud

To truly deliver outstanding solutions to our customers, we need to get out of the datacenter management business and into the business of service design, delivery, and brokerage.

Leading Innovation in Higher Education

In alignment with UCF’s Strategic Plan, our migration to innovative cloud services will improve operational efficiency and provide valuable experience to our staff.

U.S. News & World Report ranks UCF “among the most innovative schools in the nation”

Embracing Economies of Scale

To support the university’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050, we are replacing our on-site physical infrastructure with highly efficient cloud architecture and services.

Providing Innovative Technology Solutions

Our transition to cloud services fully supports UCF IT’s mission to provide innovative IT solutions, dynamic service offerings, and reliable quality of service.

Preparing the Future Technology Leaders

Gartner predicts that by 2025, 80% of enterprises will shut down their traditional datacenters. We will transform our technical staff from maintainers of static infrastructure to builders of modern and agile cloud solutions.
