Powerful performance = Smaller servers
Launch LRS is so efficient that it needs 1/4 the processing power of other leading Learning Record Stores. So even if you upgrade from our free tier, the total cost of ownership is still less than the leading open source LRS2.
1 Launch LRS was compared with other self hosted Learning Record stores using the same infrastructure and initial conditions. Each LRS was installed on a separate AWS t2-medium Linux instance in the US-East 1 region and used a database on the instance. 10,000 statements were added to the LRS prior to the speed test and ADL’s xAPI test suite was used as a measure of speed. Installation, addition of statements and testing was repeated three times for each LRS, with each installation and test conducted on a separate instance. Mean speed was calculated for each LRS from the three tests results.
2 Based on using an AWS t2-micro costing 75% less than the t2-medium required by a leading open source LRS and purchasing the Launch 50,000 statement plan.
