Kentucky Department of Education moves to Microsoft Live@edu cloud services

“The Kentucky Department of Education has selected Microsoft Live@edu to bring 21st century communications and collaboration tools to more than 700,000 students, faculty and staff statewide. The cloud-based service has already been rolled out to more than half a million people in one of the largest cloud deployments and fastest migrations of all time. The state expects to avoid $6.3 million in operational costs over four years by moving to cloud with Live@edu. The deployment isn’t only one of the largest in the world, but it’s also one of the fastest. The commonwealth moved more than half a million people from approximately 180 distributed Exchange Server 2003 on-premise servers to Live@edu during a single weekend. The quick migration helped minimize disruption and speed access to new technologies, such as Exchange Server 2010, which powers Live@edu cloud-based e-mail. Now more than 11 million people across 10,000 schools on every continent are using Live@edu as their technology solution. This’s fast on the heels of last year’s move by the Board of Regents in the State of Ohio who also selected Live@edu for a University System wide initiative and last week’s University of Arizona decision to choose BPOS,” writes Microsoft.
