Making sure UAccess Student doesn’t crash during registration. Testing system backups without interrupting regular service. These are just some of the benefits UITS is planning to capture by moving all its enterprise systems out of the Computer Center data center and into the cloud—Cloudaprise.
Moving enterprise services began in spring 2016 and the rest should be complete by fall 2017. Cloudaprise will include all the UAccess systems, the UAConnect email system, Arizona.edu and other centrally hosted websites. Learn more.
