IT:AD:EduServe

IT:AD:New Era's cloud service for Education.

  • Advantages:
    • In the cloud.
    • Already has established commercial understandings with N4L for networking.
  • Considerations:
    • Getting into a business (DataCenters) that the rest of the market is getting out of. They're expensive to maintain, certified, and hard to compete with pricing of Azure/Amazon who are racing to the bottom and can go much further due to economies of scale due to much more available infrastructure.
    • Focused on IaaS, rather than moving schools towards SaaS/PaaS
    • Pricing is higher than comparable IaaS services, but there is implication that it is more managed (Backup, etc).
