New Services Overview from MOREnet!

E-mail Archiving - With MOREnet's E-mail Archiving service, subscribers can archive e-mail for their organizations simply, securely and inexpensively. We can archive e-mail from cloud services like Google, or live@edu accounts or if you host your e-mail locally. For more information visit http://www.more.net/services/e-mail-archiving.

Virtual Servers Service - MOREnet is offering a virtual server service for members to host services outside their networks ("in the cloud"). Subscribers can run many of their existing services on a remotely located server, avoiding the cost of buying and upgrading servers and increasing their server resources with a single phone call. For more information visit http://www.more.net/services/virtual-servers.

Microsoft EES Consortium Licensing – Our new EES Program allows your organization to use the current version of Windows and/or Office on all organization-owned equipment and smaller organizations can benefit from our consortium rates. The entire range of Microsoft software products, student licensing and home-use options are available. Some qualifications and restrictions apply.

Managed LMS Hosting - MOREnet's Managed LMS Hosting service will provide subscribers a maintained, tuned, and secure Moodle instance to use as their Digital Learning Environment. Subscribers can locally control access, their e-Learning classes and materials without the complexity and expense of managing and maintaining servers, hardware or the application itself.

Coming Soon – NEW: Desktop Videoconferencing! MOREnet will soon be expanding its video services to offer a desktop videoconferencing service powered by Vidyo™. This telepresence-quality service brings videoconferencing to an organization’s most commonly used business tool — personal computers. The VidyoDesktop software client delivers low latency HD-quality video for natural communications and single-click simplicity with an intuitive graphical user interface or mouse control. Desktop Videoconferencing puts the productivity power of videoconferencing into the hands of the users. Watch for more details coming soon!
