Why should I use UChicago Cloud Services?

What if I already have an account established with a provider?
Sometimes it is possible to bring existing accounts under the University’s agreements. In other cases it may be possible to move content from an existing account to a University account. See the individual service descriptions or submit a question to firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
