Monash University

Taking higher education to the cloud

Learn how Monash University is transforming higher education with a cloud-only initiative supported by NetApp® ONTAP® Cloud with the Kumolus Cloud Management Platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS).

In 2013, Monash University launched Beyond 2015, a multi-year, cloud-first strategy focused on leveraging industry-leading cloud services from AWS. To manage its rapidly growing cloud storage footprint, Monash selected NetApp ONTAP Cloud integrated with the Kumolus Cloud Management Platform for drag-and-drop, full-stack AWS provisioning, governance, and automation.

ONTAP Cloud lets us bring data together in Amazon to learn from it and make our campus better.

Faster, self-service provisioning of resources means that Monash can access petabytes of storage capacity in a matter of minutes. The University can quickly spin up and tear down environments and retain data indefinitely to fuel future discoveries.

The modernization of its infrastructure has also enabled the University to leverage the Internet of Things and big data analytics to make its campus “smart.” It collects and analyzes data on the habits of students, staff, and faculty to improve network access and make better use of shared campus resources.
