Since the birth of internet technology, the technology industry has been steadily moving away from local storage to remote, server-based storage and processing, in what has become known as the cloud. Cloud computing is aimed at providing IT as a service to the cloud users on-demand basis with greater flexibility, availability, reliability and scalability with utility computing model. Following the automation of administrative tasks, teaching and learning, research and collaboration activities at Koforidua Technical University (KTU) campus, there has been a need for a computing paradigm that would facilitate management’s vision of putting KTU on the digital landscape.
