Moving to a more reliable place

We are pleased to announce that Accudemia will be moving to the Amazon cloud.  The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) offers a highly reliable, flexible, and secure environment.  The service runs within Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and datacenters.  The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% availability! This move will provide Accudemia users with more reliable service.

To assure minimal disruption to Accudemia users, we plan to move Accudemia during the Christmas break (December 17 to 31).  Sometime during this period, Accudemia will go down while we make the switch.  When it comes back, Accudemia will be running on Amazon.  All data will be moved as well and users will be able to continue where they left off.  Since this move is occurring during the holiday, we expect that most users will not even notice it.

We are looking forward to providing you with even better service in 2012.

In this post everything is done by hand, that means that you are going to have to type all student names, subject areas and all the information you might need. Once you have the whole thing up and running you probably will import all the other information; so I suggest you to start creating one or 2 students, one or 2 instructors, and so on. If it’s the first time you access Accudemia, maybe you went through the initial Configuration Wizard which let’s you setup the basic stuff. In this guide we will verify all the required information is there, and create it if it is not. 1. Create the Staff Accounts: It’s always a good point to start; once you have created the administrator accounts in Accudemia they can help you to setup all the other things. You can do it from the User Accounts menu. Just make su
