Independence of resources
Weduc is a containerised, horizontally scaled platform which uses Amazon ECS and auto-scaling groups to provide scaling for our compute requirements.

Files are stored using Amazon EFS which allows throughput bursting to allow Weduc to remain responsive during spikes and surges in usage.

Our data storage backend uses Amazon Aurora Postgres with a Redis cache to for performance.

Each component can be scaled individually without downtime or disruption to service.

Our cloud infrastructure is split across 3 availability zones within Amazon London to provide high-availability.

We use CloudFront for edge distribution to provide the fastest delivery possible for cacheable resources.

Availability and resilience

Guaranteed availability
As per our SLA , our target uptime is 99.9% inside Working Hours (Monday – Friday excluding English Bank Holidays).
Our software updates are typically every 2-4 weeks and for the majority of software updates, we are able to keep the users running whilst the update occurs, but on occasions it is necessary to take the system offline when making fundamental database and architectural changes.
Approach to resilience
Availability Data centres are built in clusters in various global regions. All data centres are online and serving customers; no data centre is “cold.” In case of failure, automated processes move customer data traffic away from the affected area. Core applications are deployed in an N+1 configuration, so that in the event of a data centre failure, there is sufficient capacity to enable traffic to be load-balanced to the remaining sites.

More information is available upon request.

Weduc is hosted in the London data centre and split across 3 availability zones. Each availability zone is designed as an independent failure zone. This means that availability zones are physically separated within a typical metropolitan region and are located in lower risk flood plains (specific flood zone categorization varies by Region).

In addition to discrete uninterruptable power supply (UPS) and onsite backup generation facilities, they are each fed via different grids from independent utilities to further reduce single points of failure.

Availability zones are all redundantly connected to multiple tier-1 transit providers. Distributing applications across multiple availability zones provides the ability to remain resilient in the face of most failure modes, including natural disasters or system failures.
Outage reporting
The Weduc platform uses a number of infrastructure and application monitoring tools. These tools notify the infrastructure team by email and push notification if response times, error rates or throughput breach upper or lower thresholds or move out of their normal ranges or there are reachability failures.

In the event of a interruption to service customers are informed by the following methods; Email / The Weduc Website / Social Media

We use AWS CodeBuild and CodePipeline to deploy changes to the platform.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Weduc takes a proactive approach to vulnerability management.

Our processes ensure that dependencies and operating system images are kept up to date and deprecated packages are factored out. Additionally we use automated scanning tools such as AWS Inspector to scan our deployment images for vulnerable packages.

Our application is pen-tested by external testers annually. In the case where a vulnerability is discovered on our live infrastructure, we aim to have a patch pushed to live within 24 hours.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Weduc uses a number of infrastructure and application monitoring tools alerting us to abnormal traffic or requests that match likely attack vectors or probes. Additionally, users who discover a vulnerability may report this to us.

In the event of a suspected attack or breach, our development and infrastructure team will work with our DPO and communicate with the relevant parties.

We have a number of tools that allow us to mitigate vulnerability such as Web Application Firewall rules, IP address range blocking and deploying changes to the platform if required.

We treat potential data security issues with the highest priority.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
Users may report incidents by any of our support channels or external users may report incidents to

Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

The Covid-19 pandemic created an unprecedented situation for businesses, schools, and individuals.

During the school closures, Weduc provided a vital communication channel between the school and the parents. We saw a significant increase in user uptake and engagement during this time. Our users began to explore new ways they could use Weduc to keep parents informed of arrangements made by the schools and to keep children in touch with their class. Features like our home learning module allowed schools to manage the remote learning process.

To help schools during this period, we offered all schools free use of our product for 3 months combined with an expeditated implementation process.

During this time, the Weduc team moved to a remote-working model. During the lockdown periods, we were able to provide full service to our customers and produce development continued uninterrupted.

We able to continue to provide secure employment for all our staff during this period.

Weduc is a growing company. We are proud to be creating well-renumerated, skilled jobs in the Ed-Tech sector during a time when many people have lost their roles.
