Who Needs a Data Center? Mixed Strategy for Cloud Migration in Higher Education

Presented by

A. Michael Berman, Vice President for Technology & Communication, California State University Channel Islands

About this talk

The availability of so many options and platforms for cloud migration seems daunting when you first start out. We started with the assumption that, at least for a smaller university, the economics of the cloud will lead to the end of life of our data center well before the end of this decade, but the benefits, costs, and opportunities for cloud migration are quite uneven and shifting rapidly. We'll share our journey and the criteria we use to decide what to move to the cloud (and where), and what to keep on premises - for now.
