Investigating using large scale cloud computing to host Moodle


Large scale cloud computing can provide the architecture for Moodle to achieve high performance, scalability, high availability, security and reliability. But, it also has its challenges. This presentation will cover Idaho State University’s investigations of using large scale cloud computing to host Moodle and lessons learned. I will cover running Moodle on multiple load balanced servers, setting up Moodle caching on memcached, autoscaling, and database replication for automatic failover, performance testing, tuning, and monitoring.
