Cloud hosting company Infinitely Virtual is rolling out new hosting options for schools. With Infinitely’s Virtual Terminal Server – Premium (EDU) Plan, educators and students can access applications and data from anywhere in the world, Infinitely said.

“At every level, this truly is a complete solution,” Infinitely CEO Adam Stern said in a prepared statement. “Our plan combines the security and control of redundant Active Directory controllers [and] the file sharing simplicity of a fileserver and [Microsoft] SharePoint server with our Virtual Terminal Server – and our engineers can get users up and running in less than a day.”

According to Infinitely, the Virtual Terminal Server – Premium (EDU) Plan is hosted in the company’s Enterprise Virtualization Environment (E.V.E.). Infinitely guarantees 100 percent uptime and complete data protection for all  E.V.E. servers, including the new one.

In addition, this plan supports most Windows applications, Infinitely said. Under the plan, users can remotely access applications and data at any time. Five plan tiers also are available – the lowest tier (the Gold level) features 2 cores, 1 GB of RAM and 20 GB of storage, while the top tier (the Diamond+ level) scales to 8 cores, 8 GB of RAM and 60 GB of storage.

Infinitely launched its initial cloud hosting plan aimed at the education sector last month. This cloud hosting company ultimately plans to unveil four plans for schools, and Stern noted that these offerings could help schools leverage the cloud and stay on budget.

“Whether you’re continuing your education or working hard to earn a degree, it’s vital to stay on budget,” Stern said in a prepared statement. “That’s why we’re now offering access to cloud hosting at reduced cost[s] for educational institutions and their students worldwide. Server virtualization and applications hosting in the cloud can dramatically increase productivity via enterprise-grade compute power and global mobility, [and] at the very same time, it reduces costs thanks to our infinitely scalable servers. That’s a message we trust will resonate with the education market.”
