Private Cloud, quality and closeness

One of the keys to success of the Tutellus + Stackscale project is the great human value behind every service.

Tutellus is an online education collaborative platform born in 2012 with the goal of creating a fresher, video-based and collaborative product. Their vision is clear: “helping more than 100 million people during the following 5 years to improve their life through education”. The project’s growth lead them to rethink their infrastructure in 2015.

From Public Cloud to Private Cloud

The first infrastructure of Tutellus consisted of a stack based on Java that run on a Public Cloud environment. But as the project grew, the team started to be aware of the huge expense that infrastructure involved and during 2015 they started to rethink it; opting for going from a Public Cloud to a Private Cloud.

Stackscale’s Private Cloud offer them “an unbeatable quality-price vs. services ratio”, as its CEO, Miguel Caballero, explains. During the infrastructure’s reconsideration the team was sure about that they wanted to use Docker, which was already emerging strongly in 2015, and a Private Cloud was the best environment for doing so. Moreover, Stackscale’s specialized technical support offers a personal treatment and help for growing without limits.

“The few times we have had an incident it has been solved in minutes, by responsive people that has a deep knowledge of the service we have contracted. Nothing like a call center.”

A simple migration: we turned one platform off and set the other one up

The infrastructure migration was very simple, since it coincided with a technological change of all the platform. Furthermore, the data volume was quite delimited. We migrated the NodeJS/Javascript ecosystem and simply turned one platform off and set the other one up after 24h of data migration.

Tutellus

Tutellus is an online education collaborative platform that combines design, simplicity and technology to offer a simple, social and fun experience. Currently, it is present in 160 countries, with about 170.000 video courses in Spanish and a community of almost 2 million students whose value is hard to measure and compare. A community that according to his CEO, Miguel Caballero, “is worth millions”.
