A Technical Feasibility for Adoption of Cloud Computing in King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia

Wajih Izzat Abu Ghazaleh, Dr. Waqar Ahmad


Abstract: The current study focuses on how Cloud Computing, private cloud in particular, is influencing educational institutions worldwide. Although commercial enterprises are in the process of using cloud computing yet most of the educational organizations are still running the traditional client server model. This model caused many problems to different educational institutions. After studying the literature, the author discovers that the technical feasibility for private cloud adoption in an educational institution has not been comprehensively conducted in previous studies. The current study tries to narrow this gap via carrying out six steps before the adoption of cloud computing and three steps after the adoption. The results attained before the adoption show a significant underutilization of compute resources in client server model and poor average availability, performance and response time for the PMS application hosted at that model. However, the outcomes accomplished after the adoption indicate a substantial boost in several areas of private cloud assessment. These outcomes are measured by systems outstanding availability, performance and response time in Aziz Admissions Portal assessment. Also some top users were interviewed to measure the performance and satisfaction level. Finally, it can be concluded that private cloud computing helped KAU to overcome difficulties faced in the previous model and helped to improve the performance tremendously.
