  1. It’s great that the Australian Curtin University of Technology on the basis of Cisco Unified Computing System has hosted cloud service to increase IT productivity and business agility with the help of quick delivery of services. This is really an achievement for the university.

  2. Hope the new creation will work better.

  3. There are always great advantages of using virtual machines or infrastructure on a consumption basis. Get the help.

  4. We really are waiting to know the development of cloud by the Australian Curtin University of Technology

  5. The cloud environment will provide enormous flexibility in terms of pricing, usage, ability to scale up and down and many more on the basis of current computing needs.

  6. There are benefits of the cloud environment that will assist the university a lot. Good news.

  7. With Curtin picking up on this, do you think schools statewide will soon follow? I think it is a solid platform, and if VM and others are any indicator, I think it won't be long.
