When using GAFE, can we do away with all servers?

I am familiar with GAFE and how it can eliminate a mail server, but is there a way that you can also do away with the authentication process and this moving away from all windows servers?

In Salem-Keizer we won't ...

In Salem-Keizer we won't ever be able to get rid of our servers.  First, we use Active Directory to create student accounts even in Google.  That's a long-established process that we would be highly unlikely to stop using.  Also, we have application servers that run applicaitons we have either built or purchased that require a server to run.

If the question really is "Can I get rid of all storage servers?" the answer is probably mostly yes.  There may be cases where internal storage is still necessary though I can't think of one off the top of my head right now...
