Discussing the Internet these days is a bit like talking about the weather.

Take cloud computing. Educadium's EasyCampus uses the cloud to provide superior performance at affordable prices.

The cloud has been around in different guises, but the combination of the Internet, virtualization, hardware advances, and open source software has pushed it to the forefront. Attitudes are changing, too.

Gartner predicts that cloud computing will be a $150 billion market by 2013. In another study from Mimecast, 57% of respondents felt that cloud computing increased their security when compared to traditional methods for computing and data back up.

The cloud means lower-cost services, greater IT flexibility, and better user experiences. For EasyCampus subscribers, the ROI afforded by a cloud-hosted LMS allows them to focus on creating great elearning content rather than hiring technical staff or adding servers during periods of user growth.

 Clouds

Over the past 4 years, Educadium's engineers have created an advanced, state-of-the-art cloud infrastructure, which uses Amazon Web Services. Our massive computing capacity can handle growth, and our architecture is designed to scale into the thousands and even millions of users. The benefits: minimal latency, reliability and superb global reach.

EasyCampus uptime in 2011 was in excess of 99.99%, with an average response rate of less than 690 ms. EasyCampus servers had 100% uptime in December--not bad! Such reliability is made easier with a cloud-hosted LMS infrastructure.

The cloud will continue to evolve, and the Internet will have its occasional hiccups. That's to be expected. In 2012, we'll continue to leverage the best cloud-hosted LMS technologies in order to offer reliable, affordable services to growing learning organizations.
