English universities get cloud computing investment

Share this on social media:

A new programme of services and investment in England aims to deliver efficiencies to universities and colleges through shared services in cloud computing infrastructure and applications and the innovative use of digital technologies.

This £12.5 million programme is being funded by Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE) and will be managed by JISC.

The programme has two core elements: investment of up to £10 million in cloud computing, shared IT infrastructure, support to deliver virtual servers, storage and data management applications; and investment of up to £2.5 million to establish cloud computing and shared services in central administration functions to support learning, teaching, and research.
