465,000 New Users for Microsoft’s Cloud from the State University NY

Quote:
Microsoft has inked a new major deal which will see almost half a million users transition to its Cloud offerings for organizations in the education sector.

The Redmond company revealed that the State University of New York (SUNY) will offer 465,000 of its students the possibility to leverage the Live@edu suite of online communications and collaboration solutions.

From "Softpedia.com."
It would appear that Microsoft is getting serious about the Cloud. What is Google's next move going to be, and is Apple looking to get involved?

More importantly, are all 465,000 SUNY students looking to get involved or are many simply being forced to get involved?

I suppose, if MS lowers the price for their "cloud" offerings while keeping the price high for localized solutions, eventually, many will be forced to the cloud. Just watch out for the back side of that potential equation.

Thanks, Lee. The information is much appreciated.

MS already have ads airing in AUS about the 'cloud' for one of their apps. Name brand intoroduction stratergy.

There is a serious push for this cloud business already. Early days, but it the 'idea' is being pushed hard.

Google? Hard to say what thier part will be. Ad revenue most likely.

Apple? $$$ Tier 1 apps.

Does NY State University really have 465,000 students, or does that include alumni?

That's still a lot of students. It comes out to ~7266 per campus.

Actually there are a few campus' that have upwards of 15 to 25 k students a year. You have to remember they are talking vo-tech, part time, and others beside the normal every day students going for B. A.s, etc.

Think what California and Florida colleges would be like as to student population. . .a cloud dream come true. . .

I suppose that depends on your perspective. From MS's it would be a cloud with a silver lining.
