Change is coming to cloud storage at the University of Nebraska. ITS is beginning the process of moving all data from Box to Microsoft 365 services.
The University of Nebraska is moving file storage and collaboration services from Box to Microsoft 365. This change is driven by three factors.
- Cost Savings – Box is eliminating unlimited storage for Higher Education customers. If the University were to stay on Box, the cost of maintaining file and collaboration services would be unsustainable.
- Improved Services – Microsoft 365 builds on essential file and collaboration services with SharePoint and Teams. Both tools introduce new collaboration and communication capabilities for faculty, staff, and students.
- Enhanced Security – Microsoft 365 includes security services that will enhance protection for University data beyond what is currently available with existing “Box for Research” services.
