Today is the last editorial meeting for the whitepaper on the Million Moodle Reference Architecture. As a sampler of what's in it, we did hit 1 million concurrent user load generated using Erlang as a load-generation engine running on Coolstack and Niagara. So, anyone who says Moodle doesn't scale may be in for an education about how to scale open source php on Solaris. Meanwhile, a podcast went up on sun.com with an interview with Stuart, CTO and Chief Architect, Moodlerooms, and Mark Thacker, Solaris Product Marketing, Sun discuss Moodle's open source learning management system. Stuart describes how Moodlerooms utilizes Solaris and the virtualization capabilities in the Solaris operating system to scale, optimize and effectively manage its datacenter operations.
Education institutions and Fortune 500 companies alike can use Moodlerooms to host course content built on Moodle software, an open source Web-based learning management system.
