With the focus on students and the academic institutions they attend, leading cloud server provider Infinitely Virtual (www.infinitelyvirtual.com) today introduced its initial hosting plan aimed at the education sector.
The company’s “Virtual Terminal Server – Standard” Plan is the first of what will eventually be four academic market offerings from Infinitely Virtual. Under the plan, users can access applications and data from anywhere in the world – an ideal solution for those who need to tap into centralized resources from home, campus or another remote location. The Virtual Terminal Server Plan supports just about any Windows application. Pricing starts at $6.65 per user/month.
According to OnlineColleges.net, some 30 percent of K-12 IT professionals and 34 percent of higher education IT professionals implemented cloud-based services in 2011, and the trend is only picking up steam. The percentage of educational IT budgets spent on cloud computing is expected to rise steadily in the next 5+ years, the site reports.
‘Whether you’re continuing your education or working hard to earn a degree, it’s vital to stay on budget,” said Adam Stern, CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “That’s why we’re now offering access to cloud hosting at reduced cost for educational institutions and their students worldwide. Server virtualization and applications hosting in the cloud can dramatically increase productivity via enterprise-grade compute power and global mobility, at the very same time it reduces costs, thanks to our Infinitely Scalable servers. That’s a message we trust will resonate with the education market.”
Every Infinitely Virtual server is hosted in the company’s exclusive Enterprise Virtualization EnvironmentTM. E.V.E. enables Infinitely Virtual to guarantee 100 percent uptime. For additional information, visit www.infinitelyvirtual.com.
