Paul Watson, professor of computing science at Newcastle University said: “Cloud computing has the potential to revolutionise research by offering vast compute resources on-demand. “At Newcastle University we already have £million of research projects that are supported by the cloud. However, one of the major barriers to holding back further cloud adoption is the time it takes to transfer large datasets from the lab to the cloud for analysis. This new link between Janet and the Azure Cloud removes this barrier, and will allow a far greater range of research projects to fully exploit the benefits of cloud computing.”
Basem El-Haddeh, director of IT Services at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2013, said: “The work on Office 365 will save the (education) sector considerable time and money in legal due diligence and speed up adoption of Office 365. We are really pleased with the roll-out at Goldsmiths and our staff and students are already enjoying using the new system. I am looking forward to the benefits this strategic alliance can bring.”
