I am a teacher at a German school with roughly 1000 students and teachers.
We have to do online schooling due to the corona crises. I want to use jitsi, but people keep telling me, the quality is bad when having 20+ students in a chat.
Is this a client problem or a server problem?
If it is a server problem, I could try to get money to set up our own jitsi server, but what is the system requirement for a 1000 user server? Unfortunately they will all be online at the same time in 30-35 groups of 30.
I run https://meet.teamcloud.work currently for schools and businesses to use free of charge. We are based in Germany. We do have a lot of capacity available and you are free to use the platform with as many people as you like. We already have large groups at the moment and we’re getting good feedback.
Great, if you don’t mind my idle curiosity, whois database keeps most info private about your domain but the registration date (19 march 2020) and the registrant country, so why pick Panama ? are the domain price really interesting there ?
As a U.K. company you fall under the (devastating) data privacy laws of the U.K.
The location of your servers is totally irrelevant here - you still can be forced by U.K. law enforcement to disclose information (without notifying your customers). Unfortunately (thanks, Brexit) U.K. companies can’t be DSVGO compliant.
The UK is currently in a transitionary period, meaning two data protection laws apply, GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, which is the UK implementation of GDPR. When UK businesses are no longer subject to GDPR (after the transitionary period), our offerings will be switched to a EU based subsidiary for EU users to guarantee user privacy.
We are still subject to EU laws and are operating under GDPR.
