The company began exploring options to help enable their employees to take practice exams remotely while maintaining integrity. As part of their research, they needed the solution to satisfy two important criteria; first, the ability to completely secure (or invigilate) an exam remotely and secondly, a complete scalable platform to take exams for up to huge number of exam takers at a time.


EPractize Labs partnered with Institute of Engineering Studies to explore the potential solutions for securing Technip exams remotely. Their approach took into consideration the following: The company wants to conduct online test for their employees from any branch. EPractize Labs recommends single server with the following configurations.

RAM 3GB (4GB recommended)
Processor Type 64-bit
Processor Speed 2.2 GHZ or higher
Operating System WIndows / Linux


The product has been successfully deployed and first test event does not have evidence about scalability issue. The product proved to support more than 1000 concurrent access from single server instance.
