Microsoft and Google in the Education Cloud

This is worth a quick read if you are interested in what’s happening with Exchange in the cloud at Live@Edu and Google Apps

“Both Queensland University for Technology (QUT) and Ohio State University (OSU) have now signed up to Live@edu, Microsoft’s online cloud suite designed for students, including Hotmail, SkyDrive and Workspaces.

Over 100,000 students from these two universities are now using Live@edu, after extensive testing resulted in Microsoft getting the deal and Google being pushed our of the picture.”
