Cloud First


Join the conversation at #NDCloudFirst

The University looks to the OIT to provide excellent service to our students, faculty, and staff.  By leveraging the capabilities of cloud services, we can contribute a greater percentage of the OIT's organizational focus on initiatives which most closely align with the core mission of the University.  

Our new strategy for campus will be to go "Cloud First" - looking for cloud-based solutions that meet the University's needs as the first step.  A dedicated project team is also working to migrate the physical servers in Notre Dame's data center into a data center in the cloud that provides reliable, stable, fast, and flexible service.
