What is the Cloud?

‘Cloud’ is a web based computing service. It is computer hardware known as a server, which is connected through networks such as internet, intranet and/or a Local Area Network (LAN). 

Today these servers are located either on or close to UNSW premises.  Moving forward this hardware will become redundant as we relocate to new and larger servers located in other premises within Australia. 

As the first step towards bringing Office 365 to UNSW, we will be upgrading our email system by moving to Cloud technology this will pave the way for new and improved services.
