VIRTUALIZATION, STORAGE AND
MANAGED CLOUD SERVICES
The journey to the cloud can be a daunting challenge for organizations of all types and sizes. EdgeCloud is here to help you build your cloud strategy amid a dizzying array of applications and services available, and choices to be made between public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. How can you be sure that your evolution to leveraging cloud-based services is meeting the needs of your organization? Let the EdgeCloud team show you the way.
With EdgeCloud, NJEdge aims to simplify this process for our members. Through partnerships with leading cloud service providers and EdgePro resources which can be leveraged for cloud assessments and consultation, we provide a roadmap for success as you move to the cloud.
Access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Tools & Resources
NJEdge connects our members to AWS products and services like EC2, ECS, VMware on AWS, and more. With a direct peering connection to AWS, the NJEdge network enables members to quickly and securely connect to the cloud. Plus, all on-net traffic for connected members is subject to a data egress waiver for outgoing data flows from the AWS cloud, helping members save money when accessing their data.
VMware on AWS
Moving to the cloud can present challenges such as learning to use new tools, apply new skills, and adapt to new processes, all of which can be time-consuming and costly. Additional challenges such as lack of workload portability, incongruent networks and operational inconsistency, and multiple virtual machine (VM) formats can hinder hybrid cloud adoption. NJEdge streamlines this process for our members, enabling them to fully realize the value of existing virtualization implementations and skill sets via partnerships with VMware and AWS. VMware on AWS enables your organization to overcome cloud migration challenges by bringing your VMware workloads to AWS, delivered as an on-demand service. If your organization is looking to increase agility, reduce costs, and focus on core business initiatives instead of data center management, VMware on AWS can help.
Single Sign-On & One Click File Access
A modern, user friendly single sign-on solution can enable your organization to replace outdated web portals, or deliver streamlined access to your users for the first time. Through our partnership with ClassLink, NJEdge connects our members to solutions for one click sign-on for over 6,000 apps, one click file access for cloud services like G Suite, O365, and Box, and powerful analytics to help you understand the apps your users actually use and for resource and budget optimization.
Microsoft Solutions & Services (O365 & Azure)
Microsoft services and solutions have wide adoption within the NJEdge membership. Now, through EdgeMarket, members can quickly and affordably purchase the technology they need to optimize their Microsoft implementations. In partnership with Microsoft and SHI, NJEdge members can procure Microsoft solutions including Active Directory, SCCM, Azure, Windows Server, Exchange, O365, and more, along with integration and support services to make the most of their investment.
ERP & Student Information System (SIS)
ERP and SIS software lives at the core of the integrated management of an institution’s business processes and strategy. ERP and SIS systems streamline the flow of information among all business functions and departments within the institution, playing an essential role in planning, designing the operations of all academic resources. Modern, cloud-based systems leverage the information available to your institution to improve processes and operations for admissions and tuition management, attendance and course management, student records and academic analytics, and more.
Consortium Purchasing Agreements
To ease the burden of the procurement process and speed our members’ time to implementation and innovation, EdgeMarket enables NJEdge to deliver consortium purchasing agreements to members. With EdgeMarket, members gain access to current technologies at an affordable price focused on delivering optimum value.
