Oregon State University (OSU), in Corvallis and founded in 1868, is Oregon’s largest university. As a public land-grant university, conducting scientific research is part of OSU’s mission. However, the school’s new information and technology officer found it unacceptable that the university could not engage in health care research requiring HIPAA-level security standards because its previous cloud service didn’t meet security requirements. To address this challenge, the school chose to migrate its data to Microsoft Azure. As a result, the university now has reliable, compliant, and more secure data management that has positioned the school for additional research opportunities.
