Tulane University wanted to upgrade its aging email infrastructure, but its needs were somewhat complex. It wanted leading-edge email, collaboration, and messaging services, but it also wanted a fully redundant email infrastructure to ensure communications continuity should another major hurricane pummel New Orleans. It wanted a solution that faculty, staff, and students could access from anywhere, at any time, and from any device, but it also needed a solution designed with HIPAA compliance in mind, since the new email solution it deployed would be supporting the University's medical school and hospital facilities. Finally, Tulane's IT team wanted to find a way to meet all these needs without breaking the bank. Tulane moved into the cloud, using a HIPAA-compliant, disaster-tolerant solution from Microsoft: Office 365 for education.
