Hello everyone. I want to ask for help on some issues related to a Moodle platform that should handle about 125 students (maximal users), 25 teachers, and perhaps 25 students+20 teachers the same time (I read somewhere that´s the peak charge).
The info I need is about technical specs that we need to know for a host service, so that it delivers a proper perfomance to the course, (and I mean disk space needed, monthly bandwith, mail accounts, and maybe connection type [T1, T2, or connection speed if you prefer).
None of the host services in this country - at least the two or three that I´ve asked- have direct support on a Moodle platform. Besides that, before writing this, I had read some articles on this course about machines configurations and platform demands (that golden rule of 4 gigs RAM on server, for example...), but there´re always related to which kind of server people need to buy/construct to work INSIDE their projects, and certainly this is not that scenario...
So if someone has hosted a Moodle with an external provider, and has experienced with that for a while - and I mean with students and teachers- , please share their impressions, even though it´s not the exact config I mentioned here. I think that knowing about each other´s experiences will help everybody, to have some idea of the kind of configuration I´m asking for.
Thanks a lot.
