Sun & Moodlerooms - Part II

The spotlight today turns back to the next-phase of our Moodle Reference Architecture with our great partner Moodlerooms, especially as national scale implementations in emerging markets move to the top of the agenda. This time we're bringing in the code to performance tune on an M5000 blade platform on Coolstack, add integration of the Alfresco open source repository on the Thumpers with ZFS , a Mahara open source e-Portfolio system and a bridge to Wonderland and immersive learning. Folks can either host the stack locally with complete support or just sign up for the hosted service cloud with both already proven and documented at $1/per year/per student with up to 1 million concurrent users. It's Hal's favorite LMS too which is fun.

It was great to see Phil's email yesterday highlighting the latest piece in the Washington Post on KZO's new video collaboration platform built on the open source Red5 flash engine. After some work in MDE labs, the KZO SaaS service is now running on Sun and ported to Solaris 10 and rocking on Thumper.
