School Control System in the cloud


Mxmart Solutions About UNICLA


The Universidad Contemporánea de las Américas (UNICLA) is an educational institution whose academic offerings range from high school to master`s degree programs in various areas of knowledge and always seeks to be at the forefront of education, with academic excellence and human warmth. With more than 23 campuses throughout Mexico, and a distance education offer, UNICLA seeks to contribute to the development of a prepared, fair and equitable society.

The challenge

UNICLA was looking to migrate its entire environment of technological solutions (including a school administrative control system and a WordPress website) to the cloud to optimize costs and modernize the administrative system they had developed and could not continue updating due to the limitations of physical servers.

Why Amazon Web Services?

The Contemporary University of the Americas knew that the cloud offered the advantages of cost optimization and freedom from the limitations of physical servers, so after analyzing different public clouds and presenting them with a proof of concept of their possible architecture on AWS they came to the conclusion that the AWS cloud had just what they were looking for and saw even greater potential.

The solution

The architecture has been created with cost optimization in mind, looking for the perfect balance in cost-benefit without affecting the performance or availability of the solution. Both the administrative system and the WordPress site have been migrated to an EC2 instance which is in an Auto Scaling Group that always keeps an instance running, thus avoiding having to launch a new instance every time one stops, this new instance that is launched automatically does so with a backup that AWS Backup

These instances are redirected by an Elastic Load Balancer which in turn is behind CloudFront, distributions protected with Web Application Firewall and SSL certificates thanks to Certificate Manager guaranteeing the security of the solution.

The benefits

By having its infrastructure in the AWS cloud, UNICLA saves all the costs associated with having the infrastructure on premise, but even better than this, they have gotten rid of the limitation that prevented them from entering into a cycle of continuous improvement for their administrative system, now they can easily implement new features, update versions and continue to innovate.
