The client was seeking an off-premises lab hosting solution for their Hands-on Lab service component of the Microsoft Official Academic Course (MOAC). The MOAC is a curriculum developed to deliver instruction in Microsoft IT software and technologies. The Hands-on Lab component allows academic instructors to assign exercises to students and walk students through in-person labs during class sessions. The MOAC off-premise lab hosting is Xtreme’s largest single hosting engagement to date.
Lab Hosting Capabilities
Xtreme leveraged its Lab Hosting Platform to host the Hands-on Lab component of MOAC. Our team fully managed all aspects of the end-user lab experience, including web user interface, user credentials management, user session control, lab manual delivery, content management, and lab instancing.
MOAC Lab Hosting – Continuously Available Off-premises Hosting
For more than half of a year, Xtreme’s lab hosting service did not experience a lab-free hour; students were actively taking labs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The heavy load generated by MOAC users was easily handled by the platform, demonstrating that the Xtreme Lab Hosting Platform provides an effective off-premises solution for events and classes of all sizes.
