Why Cloud Native Applications
Campus on Cloud has been built to run natively on the Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform.
What does this mean for you?
- We provide Software as a Service: All hardware and required software is included.
- We can scale capacity up and down on demand: This allows us to easily handle peak loads such as Course Enrollment and Admissions while delivering cost savings for you.
- We provide continuous application health monitoring. Our dedicated Cloud Operations team monitors your system 24×7 to ensure peak performance.
All these benefits are delivered because Campus on Cloud is a cloud native application built using the Cloud as Platform.
Traditional Student Information Systems are merely ported to the Cloud and use the Cloud as Infrastructure. This means, you must keep the infrastructure needed for your peak demand available on tap whether used or not. This also means technology licenses (such as databases and application servers) must be purchased for peak demand further adding to the cost.
For example: A university with 5,000 students offers open student enrollment twice a year for two weeks each. During this time, application usage spikes: 10x increases and even 100x increases are frequently seen. How do these two approaches stack up?
With Campus on Cloud, you can expect a 6-8X savings in cloud costs compared to traditional Student Information Systems.
