Talk given at http://www.picconf.org/ in 2010.
Nick Silkey Senior Systems Administrator, Yale University
Content management systems are nothing new. What is new is the idea of a pressable, one-click infrastructure which can provision on-demand. This talk centers around the decision points and lessons learned from the infrastructure side of the house when a 30,000-person university standardizes upon an open-source content management system to host a rainbow of web content for various flavors of students, faculty, and staff. We shall discuss tools actively leveraged in the trenches which support automated builds and deployment, version-control systems, continuous integration workflow tools, along with high-availabilty infrastructure components. In addition to providing an overview of how this was accomplished, details about upcoming enhancements to the environment will be discussed.
