MIRhosting cloud for educational institutions

Cloud platform for highly flexible and efficient education
Deliver new generation educational content while minimizing your costs

  • You are getting access to unlimited computing power for your applications, however you will only be paying for the actual resources consumed.
     Pay only for
    real usage
  • Each cloud location is distributed across two datacenters, which would give you an unprecedented redundancy in a scenario when one of the datacenters is completely taken offline (highly unlikely scenario).
     Fault-tolerant
    infrastructure
  • You can scale your server up or down and create clusters by adding nodes. All setting can be easily changed manually or you can set up autoscaling parameters for the system to execute.
     Autoscalable
    and clusterable
  • By default you will be provided with daily backup for all of your projects, this data will be retained for 30 days. If required, the frequency of backups can be customized, including making snapshots every hour.

We are ready to support educational institutions deployments in the cloud with our special pricing and support. We can help your transition into the cloud and complement your learning process with preferential access to our platform (PaaS). Recent changes in information technology are opening access to new opportunities. Those who pay attention and are willing to experiment will be able to rely on even more effective tools. Education field is always on top of great and new things but is always limited in financial resources. MIRhosting is able and willing to close this gap with our preferential terms for educational establishments.

Cloud platform can be used for:

  • Distant learning
    Cloud can be used for deployment of any popular distant learning management applications such as Moodle, Blackboard and others. Our cloud can help optimize your education process and provide:
    - interaction with unlimited number of students
    - uninterrupted online content delivery
    - regular data backups
  • Electronic Registrar
    Cloud can be used to keep track of everything that is happening within the educational institution. This automation can effectively improve interaction between three key elements of the process: administration - teacher - student. Electronic Registrar can perform same function as conventional registrar with higher automation level which can reduce services delivery time.
  • E-libraries
    You can use MIRhosting cloud to create a truly electronic library. Converting physical books into digital documents is one of the largest objectives carried out on a lot levels within educational institutions. Electronic libraries allow institutions to stay up to date on the offered materials and at the same time provide instant access to what is needed. Cloud is a very effective tool for electronic content delivery.
  • Practical training platform
    Cloud platform is an ideal environment for IT students to practice their skills and obtain new experience. Any student can deploy programming code individually or as part of the group project without limitations. All this can be easily achieved with our platform! You can also use this platform to create multiple working groups with master account assigned to the educator and exercise full control over resource allocation and consumption.

Frequently asked questions

How is resource consumption measured?

Resource consumption is measured in Cloudlets. One cloudlet is a combination of RAM and CPU processing power, 1 Cloudlet = 128 MB of RAM and 400 Mhz of CPU.
Billing is calculated every hour based on how many cloudlets were consumed.

What are the advantages of cloud based platform over standard application virtualization or desktop virtualization?

There are four main advantages:

  • There are four main advantages: Billing is done on hourly basis and what is mostly convenient only actual consumption of each element of the application is factored in and monetized.
  • Autoscaling feature allows customers to plan for resource consumption spikes related to certain time of the day (close of business day for accountants) or preparation for a marketing campaigns when web traffic can increase dramatically. If it is needed, we can provision container migration or resizing in real time without compromising container performance.
  • Horizontal scalability and clustering any element of the environment can be clustered with a single click. For example, a database replica can be created instantly with immediate synchronization while simultaneously being deployed on a different server or in a remote datacenter.
  • Distributed approach to file storage allows to bypass single SAN storage utilization (single point of failure). Binary data distribution across multiple servers delivers augmented failover and also significantly increases data processing speeds.

Why are containers better than virtual machines?

Among main advantages is absence of kernel within a container, which makes it extremely agile and flexible. Containers can be scaled up or down in real time (for example add or reduce RAM) without compromising performance or triggering a reboot and they are significantly safer (all critical updates are installed by your team).

What kind of special efforts are required in order to add an application to the cloud platform?

No special provisioning is needed in order to add an application to the cloud platform. Any Linux or Windows application can be integrated with MIRhosting cloud orchestration portal by loading it up in recognized/supported format - .WAR, .ZIP, .EAR or via a URL (http:// or ftp://). You can preinstall your application within the cartridge and deploy it with one click if needed.
Alternatively, an application can be deployed or updated by cloning from GIT or SVN repository.
