Coursera is an educational company that collaborates with Stanford, Duke, Princeton, the London School of Economics and other institutions to offer free online classes. With more than 145 partners and over 2,000 classes on its website, Coursera needed to track student data, store and deliver videos, and enable students and teachers to interact with each other. By using AWS services such as Amazon EC2 instances, which run on the latest Intel Xeon processors, Coursera can handle half a petabyte of traffic each month and scale to deliver courses to over 21 million learners from around the globe.
