Barracuda Load Balancer ADC and Moodle

The education landscape has seen a revolutionary change thanks to Moodle, the most sought after open-source learning platform. Moodle is a flexible and feature-rich application that has millions of users from K-12 to major universities as well as large enterprises.

The challenge, however, lies in building and scaling Moodle clusters without compromising on performance. For learning environments to be truly effective, continual availability and distributed clustering of Moodle across various sites is critical. Configuring and maintenance of available open-source solutions is riddled with difficulties and can also prove to be time intensive.

Der Barracuda Load Balancer ADC bietet eine einfache, aber wirkungsvolle Lösung zur Bewältigung dieser Schwierigkeiten. Nach der Bereitstellung verteilt der Load Balancer Traffic auf verschiedene Cluster. Seine Load-Balancing-Algorithmen und die integrierte Konfiguration zur Erkennung der Serverlast können die maximale Leistung des Clusters erzielen. Kontinuierliche Zustandsprüfungen ermöglichen es, den Traffic von ausgefallenen Servern an andere Server im Cluster umzuleiten und so stets höchste Verfügbarkeit zu ermöglichen.

Keeping in mind that distance learning is a key offering of learning management systems, the Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) capabilities of the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC provides location-aware access to resources.

Securing the front end of your learning site can be taken care of with the SSL/TLS offloading capabilities in the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC. Additionally, they will reduce performance overheads. Integration with external authentication servers is possible enabling authentication offload. You can also restrict site access to certain parts for specific users thereby ensuring separation between instructor and student areas.

Web application attacks can be deftly detected and blocked through deep content inspection, SSL decryption, and examination and protocol validation using a simplified web-based management console.
