Infrastructure as a Service

To ensure that the needs of the community are accurately represented, ITS is seeking feedback on the working groups identified goals, objectives, and strategies. These recommendations were developed by the working group and informed by the needs of the Yale community.  Please use the comment section on this page to share your thoughts or ideas with the working group.

Working Group Description

This working group will explore moving to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IAAS), maintaining current private cloud-like services, and adopting potential or emerging infrastructure services for which Yale does not have specific domain knowledge. This effort will lead to developing plans and strategies for the next three years.
