Catalyst IT “Follow The Sun” model  – 24/7 live support for cloud managed services

Cloud services for EdTech and open source software

Cloud computing is a critical component of any education provider’s business model.  It has helped mitigate the impact of the global pandemic and the loss of face-to-face learning.  At the same time, it has expanded the size of the addressable market to a global opportunity.  Having reliable systems and processes in place to enhance user experience is more important than ever, as competition to acquire and retain students and online learners has never been greater.

Cloud infrastructure to support Moodle LMS

Catalyst has extensive experience in managing the cloud performance of large Moodle instances, for clients such as Monash University and Navitas, the global education providers.  The pipelines that we have developed enable product enhancements and security updates at scale.

We understand that to deliver e-learning effectively, educators, learning and development teams and learning technologists need to maintain student engagement levels.  To this end, we work closely with large university clients to ensure their learning management systems are optimised for high performance and cost management, nationally and internationally.  During peak times of  assessments and high stakes exams, we make sure that capacity is adjusted to support demand.


Cloud automation & orchestration

Catalyst managed services allow you to leverage our investment in the cloud automation and orchestration of our cloud infrastructure. We can deliver:

  • Seamless and effortless migration – we have a tried and tested cloud migration framework to lift and shift your applications
  • Containerised high availability and fault tolerant cloud architecture, as standard
  • Pipelines that deliver the latest LMS enhancements and security updates as they become available
  • Certified, expert 24/7 live support nationally, regionally and globally

Catalyst Case Study – Migration & Cloud Services

What our clients say:

With a target audience of 300,000 school staff nationally, we couldn’t have afforded to deliver this online training without the cloud. Now we have users signing on at a rate of 5,000 to 10,000 a month, and the system doesn’t blink.”

Chris Kilham, University of Canberra - Associate Professor of Education and Project Leader

We’re impressed with its user-friendly design that addresses the needs of students and faculty.”
