Based on the analysis of modern platforms for organizing the educational environment and based on current trends in the IT market, Cloud Computing is currently one of the most promising areas. The article defines the essence of cloud computing, which is to provide hosting users with remote access to services, computing resources and applications over the Internet. Examples of the use of cloud technologies in the public sector and education are given. The main types of services provided by the Russian cloud services market (Saas and Iaas) are described. The implementation of the” National Cloud Platform O7″, developed by Rostelecom, is discussed in more detail. The advantages of organizing the educational environment with the help of cloud technologies are considered. Stand out. characteristic features of the Cloud Computing concept, various types of clouds are considered, their advantages and disadvantages. The organization of a unified educational environment of a higher educational institution through cloud computing is a promising direction that allows achieving high technological efficiency: while reducing the cost of purchasing special software and hardware, the quality and efficiency of the educational process in the conditions of digitalization of the economy significantly improves, and it also becomes possible to provide educational services in the “one window” mode, which is a priority of the Government of the Russian Federation.
