High Volume Open Source CMS Sites

Sent by Hauck, William B. on 13 January 2004 20:08

Sorry if this comes through twice, but I didn't see it...


Just curious about 4-5 MB files.  I can understand serving up millions of them daily, but would you
really be uploading 1000 4-5MB files daily?!  What type of site are you thinking of?  A news site
with _lots_ of video clips?

Aside from serving these files, you'd have to have quite the infrastructure to support storing them
... adding 4GB daily would take lots of disk space, bandwidth, etc.  Would it even be advisable to
host all this content in a single CMS?  Wouldn't it be better to use a service like Akami to spread
the load around, give shorter paths to the data, and be disaster-tolerant?

Again, just curious.

When I was thinking about high volume the parameters I was thinking about generally were:

3-5 million pageviews per day with multiple assets per page.

Serving 3-4 million 4-5 megabyte files per day.

Ingesting into the content management system approximately 1000 4-5 
megabyte files per day.

My experience was with a top 1000 website and dealing with a CMS that we 
made from scratch, my hope is that the open source solutions have this sort of scalability today
assuming the right combinations of hardware, etc.
