As every ranch was once a wild prairie, the cloud in higher education starts with research or instructional workloads moving awkwardly into AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. Ultimately, architecting and managing secure, cost-efficient, and scalable access to cloud infrastructure is key to transitioning from the wild west to a well-managed ranch.
