Andina University of Cusco is a private university located in the city of Cusco, Peru, with a student population of around 22,000. Early in the COVID pandemic, the university needed to rapidly transition to fully virtual instruction in accordance with lockdown orders, which required a more sophisticated computing environment. With its competitive pricing, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) was the best choice among the cloud vendors that the university considered. The university’s previous experience with MySQL-powered services was also a major factor in the decision to migrate to OCI. After the implementation, Andina University reduced infrastructure maintenance costs by 15% annually and increased the availability of its digital services to 100%.
