Education

Digital technology now touches every aspect of the world of education. Not only are today’s student digital natives, but teachers are eager to leverage the new possibilities education technology (EdTech) enable. The problem is that most K-12 schools have very limited budgets and IT expertise. By implementing Google Cloud-based VDI with itopia’s IT infrastructure management solution — Cloud Automation Stack (CAS) — schools can easily deliver the best-in-breed EdTech to students.
