SANDCamp: Prepare to Scale

William O'Connor

San Diego Drupal Development

SANDCamp was this past weekend, and I had the pleasure of being able to present. The first half of the presentation was geared at improvements that can be utilized by small sites (app/db on the same server) to improve performance and increase capacity. The second half of the presentation - which I had to race through - was aimed at creating specialization (multi-server architectures) so that each server can take on particular responsibilities.

My hope is that the presentation had something in it for everyone: improvements for those with the smallest sites to those embarking on high-availability systems.

Attached is the slide deck I utilized for the presentation.

Any questions or comments, feel free to contact me. Thanks!

Achieve Internet is excited to announce the recent launch of a new Digital Health Library created for our long-standing client Scripps Translational Science Institute.  
The importance of monitoring your server access logs We recently had a client come to us with random performance problems on their site.  The site is a low traffic brochure site on a shared hosting account.  Most of the time the site performs reasonably well.  However, there are mysterious times where the site slows down to a crawl. This reached a critical point Friday afternoon and their hosting provider shut down the site for using too many server resources.
