Quick update

Just a quick update on a few things. We've finally got the go ahead to really go with Google mail and calendar for students this September, so will be working hard now to get all of the technical stuff and integration in place.

Lots of excitement around the imminent go live of our collaboration service - uSpace. We did a stress and volume test last Friday and even I couldn't break it. It was great fun watching how inventive people were in starting discussions, posing questions and creating documents though.

No further updates for next day or two - I'm off to Chelsea Flower Show.

Fantastic news. I hope there are similar plans afoot for staff!

It's interesting to see how you are developing your service. Is uSpace powered by Jive SBS (formally Clearspace)?

Chris Sexton said...

Yes, uSpace is our implementation of Jive SBS/Clearspace

So what are you doing? Re-directing mail so you use c.sexton@sheffield.ac.uk as your address but everything is stored at and fetched from xxx@gmail.com?

More or less, yes
