Testimonial from Arizona State University
Let’s face it, everyone expects on-line stuff to always be "on" and accessible. With Google we can leverage their hundreds of datacenters, engineers and resources. Frankly, there is no way we could deliver a service such as this with the same level of benefit – 7+ GB mailboxes, on-line document creation, sharing, chat, etc.
Google offers some of the best spam and phishing protection in the market. Virus checking and filtering occurs in the “cloud” not on your desktop, this means you have a better chance of keeping your machine from harm.
One of Google’s main drivers is innovation – they revolutionized searching the Internet and now they are leaders in offering online collaborative applications. This trend is not slowing down and new features are added to Google Apps very frequently with no periods of down-time due to upgrades.
Besides the important Gmail and calendar, there are several other web applications you can use which will make it easier to share information such as presentations, papers, websites. You can work with other classmates in real-time without having to email material back-and-forth.
