Beyond the Bill Blues: How Aquila Clouds Empowers Educational Institutions in the Cloud

Educational institutions are embracing the cloud like never before. From learning management systems (LMS) like Blackboard or Canvas to administrative applications and research computing, the cloud offers scalability, accessibility, and cost-efficiency.


However, these benefits can be overshadowed by the complexities of cloud financial management.

The Cloud Challenges Faced by Educational Institutions:

  • Siloed Data & Fragmented Visibility: Educational institutions often use a mix of cloud services, leading to scattered data and a lack of centralized cost oversight.
  • Resource Sprawl & Hidden Costs: Unmonitored cloud usage can lead to “shadow IT” – unauthorized cloud services – and unexpected charges.
  • Limited Expertise & Time Constraints: IT teams in educational institutions are often stretched thin, making it challenging to dedicate resources to in-depth cloud cost management.
