Enhancing the Performance of Current Online Education System—A Study of Cloud Computing and Virtualization


Online Education (OE) system is an effective and efficient way to perform the education in all sectors of government and non-government educational organization. Low performance and minimum speed are major overhead in the current ongoing OE system due to the increase of users and some system issues. Base on the previous study and recent practical issues, a model is proposed to Enhancing the Performance of Online Education System (EPOES) to examine the bare metal virtualization, isolation and virtual machine templates. Bare metal virtualization has led the native execution, isolation isolated the running application and Virtual Machine Template has help to increase efficiency, avoiding the repetitive installation and operate the server in less time. The proposed model boosts the performance of the current OE system, and examines the benefits of the adaptation of cloud computing and virtualization which can be used to overcome the existing challenges and barriers of the current OE System.
