University of Newcastle Migrates Digital Data to Cloud, Claims a University First in Australia

The University of Newcastle is claiming it is the first university in Australia to migrate its digital data to the cloud in what represents a “significant milestone” to improve services and boost cybersecurity for students and staff during COVID 19 isolation.

The university says it has transitioned from a physical data centre to the cloud to be more environmentally sustainable, improve cybersecurity, enhance its technology responsiveness, and improve the digital experience for students and staff.

“We’re thrilled to be the first university in Australia to make this move to the cloud – this is a massive achievement and will mean we’re at the cutting edge of cloud technology,” said Vice-Chancellor Professor Zelinsky.

The University’s Chief Information Officer, Anthony Molinia commented on the project and the drivers behind the decision, saying that “a modern university needs to be agile, and one of the core advantages of a cloud-first digital platform is the capacity to respond and implement solutions quickly”.
