The Sakai Collaboration and Learning Environment
(CLE) is a full-featured open source system supporting
technology-enabled teaching, learning, research, and ad-hoc project
collaboration for education.
The Sakai CLE is typically deployed
using Apache Tomcat as its servlet container and scalability is
achieved by running multiple instances of Tomcat in a clustered
environment, each deploying a copy of the Sakai CLE.
Sakai CLE integrates with
a variety of external authentication services including CAS, Kerberos,
LDAP, Shibboleth and WebAuth. A single database, usually MySQL or
Oracle, provides a transactional store of information while file
storage is typically delegated to NAS or SAN solutions.
production settings, the Sakai CLE relies on a back-end student
information system (SIS) to provide it with student and course
information, which the Sakai CLE consults via provider APIs.
