Mxmart Solutions About CRESON


The Centro Regional de Formación Profesional Docente de Sonora is an institution of higher education whose essential responsibility is to guarantee the quality of teacher training by exercising the steering role in the training of education professionals in the state of Sonora; it provides initial training, continuing education and the promotion of professional development and research processes in the field of education.

The challenge

The constant growth of students, teachers and courses has generated a high demand for online courses that CRESON offers for its thousands of students, these online courses are offered on the LMS Moodle platform, this growth in interaction with multiple Moodle systems CRESON has resulted in the need to find a technological solution that allows CRESON to have their systems with the lowest possible downtime, always be available and seek cost optimization.

Why Amazon Web Services?

CRESON came to the conclusion that the solution it was looking for should be in a cloud environment, after analyzing different providers it found that Amazon Web Services offered the necessary tools and services for the solution it required.

The solution

The architecture is configured with a wide range of technologies such as elastic balancers, cache systems and sessions through ElastiCache with Redis, information distribution through Elastic File System, cluster, elastic database which adapts to the requirements of the instances thanks to the Aurora Serverless service using the PostgreSQL engine.

The system also has security services such as Security Groups, which act as virtual firewalls where traffic is restricted by means of port and protocol rules, Web Application Firewall through which requests are filtered from the origin and can be analyzed and block those that are identified as potential risks, as well as private subnets where most of the architecture is located, so that services are not directly exposed to the public, Certificate Manager through which SSL certificates are applied to all sites so that requests are encrypted.

In order to have high availability, there are services with Elastic Load Balancer through which the loads are balanced between the productive servers, and these in turn are managed by Auto Scaling Groups, which are able to know their performance and increase the number of instances when more computing capacity and regulation of these is needed.

The benefits

The benefits have not only been technological, but also operational and economic, achieving greater productivity and cost reduction, paying only for the time used of the services.
