The UJI celebrates Internet Day with e-mail migration to the cloud

On the occasion of Internet Day, Tuesday 17 May 2011, the Universitat Jaime I begins to transfer its corporate e-mail to the cloud as the next step in the ambitious process of moving many of its computer services to the Internet. By so doing, the UJI goes a step further in the process of implementing technologies to the cloud through the Google Apps UJI project and it remains at the forefront of technological development, as it will be the first Spanish university to transfer all its e mail management to the cloud.

The UJI will carry out the migration of its e-mail services to Google Mail in progressive stages until all the e-mail accounts of both University community members (administrative and service staff, teaching and research staff and students) and alumni and members of the SAUJI association have all been transferred. The first accounts to be migrated will be those belonging to the administrative and service staff and afterwards, in September, migration of the e-mail accounts of teaching and research staff will begin. Transfer of the students’ accounts is scheduled for November and finally, during the month of February 2012 the accounts of alumni and members of SAUJI will be moved.

With the migration of e-mail to the cloud, the University achieves greater cost efficiency, since its computer servers will no longer be on the campus, but on the Internet. In addition, service efficiency will be improved and consequently all the work of the University community will be enhanced thanks to Google Mail, which will provide them with over 7 GB of space.

The Google Apps UJI project will be gradually completed with the addition of other services such as an agenda, a calendar and an application for creating blogs and websites, among others.
