Common issues with Moodle which we resolve

Site Speed, Load Times and High Memory Consumption

  • Loading times and high memory usage are common problems with Moodle, which operates with a fairly large memory footprint, due to the amount of CPU calculations and included files required to generate a page.
  • Upgrading PHP to version 7 to make use of the latest performance improvements (we often see 2x the speed using PHP 7.0)
  • Large page sizes which are reduced with compression and optimisation of Javascript, CSS and image files
  • Poorly performing PageSpeed tests

Compliance (PCI-DSS / ISO27001)

  • Moodle sites failing compliance due to security issues revealed during audits and penetration testing
  • Implementing access control for VPN and/or IP restriction to the admin control panel
  • A requirement to setup a test and staging environment which is a clone of production
  • Secure multi-site environments running multiple domains, isolated and secure

Scaling to handle peak demands

  • Overloaded Moodle sites which need to handle high levels of traffic for a short period of time
  • Handling large bursts for extended periods of time
  • Moodle sites under attack from DDoS or Bots
  • Implementing Caching and CDN services

Why Cloud computing for your business

Cloud or Cloud computing, is seen by many as the next evolutionary phase of the Internet and service provision, but perhaps you are unsure how this affects your business, or, how you can capitalise on what the cloud has to offer?

The Cloud offers access to low cost, high power computing resources that are available on demand. It also offers the benefit of utilising high-speed communication channels. These features, when utilised in the correct manner, can greatly improve an organisation's competitiveness and substantially reduce operating costs.

Utilising high-speed communication channels offered by the Cloud presents new ways to communicate both internally and externally with your customers, prospective customers, business partners, and suppliers.

The Cloud can provide an ideal enhancement to Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans. Being able to access your business data after a catastrophic event is crucial to a business's recovery.

We provide Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity solutions that enable access to mission critical applications and data within minutes and hours rather than, as can happen, days and weeks.

We are AWS consultancy partners (view our AWS profile), Google and Rackspace affiliates.

"We stumbled across Buckhill after searching online for someone to support our FreeBSD internal servers as we didn't have the expertise in-house. We have since used Buckhill for various tasks including the migration from internal servers to Amazon Web Services. We found this process to be extremely professional and a smooth process. This has positively impacted the business meaning we have robust systems that outperforms our old servers, this has also translated into additional revenue for the business. The technical expertise within the team at Buckhill is far above any other agency that we have dealt with, this means that we can always rely on Buckhill to provide the very best solution for any issues we have. We now treat Buckhill as part of the in-house Digital Marketing team."
