Stability for their learning platform
Knooppunt is a network that has been designed for publishers, pupils and teachers. Depending on their role and activations, users can access certain content on the platform. Teachers can use it to find e.g. textbooks, board books (educational material that can be projected on digital boards) and sample tests. As for pupils, they can use it to find extra material that belongs with their textbooks. Since not all users are offered the same infrastructure, Knooppunt also provides a lot of educational material via apps.
A stable environment to host their educational material
Knooppunt is used every school day by hundreds of thousands of pupils, teachers and publishers. And meanwhile, the platform already offers more than 4,500 different teaching resources. The backend stores several terabytes of data, because board books take up a lot of space. Stability and availability are therefore given top priority.
“We are a non-profit association, and therefore have limited financial means. Every piece of advice that Combell gave us took due account of this aspect”
