UCloud is a game-changing, enterprise-level service using a completely new set of technologies, tools, and processes that bring the university in line with today's industry best practices for virtualization and storage.
Seamlessly integrating university-owned on-site cloud services with public cloud services (e.g., Amazon Web Services and Azure), UCloud provides better security and control over university data, as well as the ability to rapidly scale up or down.
Cutting-edge software-defined everything
One of the industry's most powerful automation engines manages networking, data storage, computing, and data center infrastructure.
Self-service web portal
Ordering and setup happens in a single self-service web portal with an Amazon-like experience.
Choose to maintain administrative control, or simply "set it and forget it" to automate common operational tasks (e.g., software deployment, maintenance, and patches).
UCloud enables security and compliance automation, providing improved risk mitigation.
In comparison to public cloud services, UCloud is less expensive to set up and maintain.
User account management
Optional Active Directory integration simplifies account setup and logins.
Automated network provisioning
Administrators can quickly provision network services to support UCloud-based services.
