because our University Computing Center is not willing to host our Moodle platform anymore, we have to rent a server from them and install and maintain it on our own. The software side should be no problem but I'm quite unsure about the hardware requirements. Currently we're running a Moodle 3.1 installation but we would like to update to 3.5 in the next 6 months or so. We have ~1300 registered users and ~900 current students at our institute but highest number of concurrently logged in users was something around 50 people. Most of the time there are like 10 people using it at the same time. The basic hosting package from our University Computing Center includes 1 virtual CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB storage. I know that I'll need more storage but apart from that I am very unsure what is needed. I could rent up to 4 virtual CPUs and up to 16GB of RAM (but that would get a bit pricey and our institute is not the best-funded at our University...anyway), so maybe one of you people has a similar user base or other recommendations and experiences.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks in advance!
