BAU (Al Balqa’ Applied University) believes it is the first University in Jordan to harness Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform to offer enhanced services for its 47,500 students – which at times of annual national exam results rises in terms of system users by a factor of 10.
Azure complements an existing BAU private cloud, thus offering the institution, which operates over 12 distributed sites, the ideal combination of flexibility and ease of administration.
“I would be happy to recommend this solution to other educational establishments… ” Dr. Abdel Rahman Alzoubaidi: ICT Director BAU
