Good afternoon all,


We here at Armstrong are looking at the possibility of using a cloud based storage solution for both file sharing and user storage. The solution I would like to see would be a hybrid of on-site storage for our sensitive/confidential data and the cloud based storage for everything else. I was wondering if anyone is currently is using this model? If so, I have two questions: 1) What cloud solution did you go with? 2) Do you have a policy or guideline that covers the data as far as what can go where in each of the storage solutions?


I am also interested to see what others may have as far as policies covering cloud based solutions when it comes to the Universities data. I have seen some that just flat out say that their policy is that you cannot use it.


Thanks for the feedback,
