DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that connects classrooms in need with people that want to donate funds to help. In 2010, DonorsChoose.org processed $30 million in donations to help 4.4 million students involved in 175,000 classroom projects.
With DonorsChoose.org experiencing massive growth, it needed to ensure that its online platform was able to support a growing number of transactions, particularly during peaks in demand.
The charity’s website, development environment and online search engine are now all supported by the CA 3TeraAppLogic cloud computing infrastructure. The platform is flexible and highly scalable to simplify website updates.
By migrating to the cloud platform, DonorsChoose is able to improve cost control, meet sustained business growth, safeguard the online experience for donors during peaks in demand and support innovation.
