Cross-region failover now available for eLumin Virtual Desktops

McLean, VA – December 9, 2020: eLumin is excited to introduce the general release of cross-region failover of our Virtual Desktop offering. 

eLumin’s Virtual Desktop offering allows colleges and universities around the country to quickly and easily deploy computer labs in the cloud. Whether they are specialized high-end purpose built labs or general computing facilities, your students can gain access to the applications they need, anywhere, anytime, from virtually any device. With this latest feature release, you can rest well knowing your students can access the resources they need when your primary AWS region is facing service related problems. The failover solution is available in several configurations – cold standby, warm failover, and active standby giving institutions the flexibility to choose the right solution for the needs of their students.

“As more and more schools rely on public cloud computing to offer services, any interruption in those services has a significant ripple effect to the student experience, as we’ve seen with major cloud providers recently” said Mohammad A. Haque, CTO of eLumin. “The addition of eLumin’s cross-region based failover continues our focus on students as the central point of our offerings and ensures business continuity in the event of a region incident requiring failover.”

This latest addition to Virtual Desktop reinforces eLumin’s core mission, delivering software resources to students to help reduce the digital divide, introduce equity in learning, and provide anywhere/anytime access to increase student outcomes. 

Cross-regional failover for Virtual Desktop is available now, please contact our sales team for more details.
