Project Type

Servers and Infrastructure


Provide an installed infrastructure after specification and costing to support a specified target of concurrent Moodle users

Stourbridge College had seen it's Moodle VLE grow in user number month on month since it went live 18 months ago and with a dramatic increase in multimedia resources being uploaded they decided to enlist the help of Ember Platforms to provide a specification, costing and installation of the new infrastructure.

While adhering to the College's strict procurement policies and prefered suppliers list, a detailed specification for the new Infrastructure was provided and agreed.

Staff at Ember Platforms carried out the installation of two new rack servers, a Direct Attached Storage (DAS) device and a tape library system all provided by Dell. A backup strategy was devised and the system was handed over to College IT staff.

The Moodle VLE is now able to support the large volumes of multimedia data and around three times as many registered\concurrent users as before.
