Teachers and curriculum managers will be able to create and deploy multiple cloud servers, pre-configured with various exercises and tasks, in a matter of minutes.”

All of this is easily managed through the VPS.NET intuitive control panel which is the first of its kind in the education sector and allows staff to manage all their student VPS’s in your their browser in a desktop-like environment.
Marc added: “This product is the first of its kind in the UK and in the education sector worldwide. The USA launch is going really well and if institutions are prepared to implement this revolutionary platform they will be delighted with the results and the ease of use when it comes to managing multiple cloud server accounts for their students.”
