The Web browser with which you login to Campus is part of the
presentation tier. This allows us to support any device with Internet

Application techniques, and GZIP compression, making our data transfer
Our business logic/application tier is hosted on Java application servers running Apache Tomcat and Java. These servers are fast and linearly-scaled based upon the number of concurrent users needed to be supported. We implement a high-availability load balancer which distributes user sessions across application servers.
Infinite Campus uses a Microsoft SQL Server relational database management system with data stored in highly-normalized tables. The data tier receives messages from the business logic tier and instructs the operating system to transfer the appropriate data. Campus customers benefit from greater overall database organization, elimination of redundant data, and improved quality and integrity of data.
