    From the LGfL technical conference yesterday, Atomwide are in the final phase of setting up and rolling out google apps with USO authentication. It will also use the LGfL email filtering. The only thing was they cant guarantee where data is stored unlike the O365 which is co-located in Ireland and the Netherlands.

    Yes this was an interesting development. I also liked their 'mydrive' announcement but I hope they won't charge extra for this. We have asked to be signed up for the pilot phase of Google apps.

    I took a good look at that, then looked again and then had to ask. It appears it's just a document repository. Won't have any integration into office, no app for tablets, etc. you may as well just put files up on your favourite MLE.

    That's disappointing. It looked like it could offer so much more than that.

    It is an interesting model for allocating space, 500Gb for each school, I have one school with 38 staff and 25 students and another with 130 staff and 150 students and a few more in between, it may have been a bit fairer to do it on number of staff x a nominal amount +10% or so to allow for fluctuations seeing as the connection is charged by the number of students (which usually reflects the number of staff).
