The University of Notre Dame’s Office of Information Technologies is in the midst of an initiative called Cloud First.
Our new strategy for campus will be to go “Cloud First” – looking for cloud-based solutions that meet the University’s needs as the first step. A dedicated project team is also working to migrate the physical servers in Notre Dame’s data center into a data center in the cloud that provides reliable, stable, fast, and flexible service.
The goal is to move 80% of their services to the cloud by the end of 2017 and several applications are already residing in the cloud. For their cloud solution, Notre Dame has chosen Amazon Web Services.
You can see their spin and summary of the initiative in the infographic below:
