We have a tutor dockerized Open Edx installation, which is stored on a VM with 8GB RAM and a 500GB disk (with average i/o).
Can it potentially support a big amount of enrolls; With more than 150,000 users. What characteristics should it have? What server specifications and hardware infostructure;
Will this be sufficient for serving a potential 150K enrolled users, or we might experience a system downtime?
Do you think this infrastructure will be sufficient or will we need to scale up? Do you suggest some other hardware specs?
We would like to mention that the MOOC (https://mooc.edu.gr/) is developed for educational reasons and no profit.
Participants of MOOC will become familiar with a wide range of useful tools, resources, and methods of integrating ICT in the classroom aiming at the development of key competencies by the students and bringing an additional pedagogical value in the learning process. Participants will be members of the Greek educational community, and enrollment is expected to reach more than 100.000 users.
Thank you in advance
