You need to be prepared for peak workloads or sudden jumps in usage:

  • homework due dates
  • online exams
  • massive online courses
  • incorporating large content libraries
  • users migrating in from other systems

The LON-CAPA model system has always been distributed and systemwide load-balancing. LON-CAPA will be based on a dynamic cloud of servers in order to gracefully absorb peak loads and grow with usage while minimizing downtime.
