Student Authentication Providers

Greetings, Curious what other schools are using for their authentication provider for students as it pertains to SIS and LMS solutions.  Can anyone share what they are using and some notes about how difficult managing / setting up the provider may be?  We may also integrate student email in the future if we start providing email to students, but that is to be determined.

Is anyone using MS Edu Live / Google Apps for their school email?

We are investigating email providers in the event we ever wish to consider moving from our own self-hosted and self-maintained Exchange Servers. How many schools are using a MS Edu Live / Google Apps for Education setup?  Have you liked it?  Are there any other "cloud" 3rd party email services being used? Thanks for any input. :) --MikeSee More
