Inside Pantheon: Pressflow, Hudson and Varnish, Oh My!

Day:  Thursday, 26. august 2010
Time:  14:45-15:45
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



How does Drupal fulfill its destiny of running a double-digit percentage of the internet? How can the community continue to grow in breadth and depth of talent? How can we continue to win converts from traditional (proprietary) CMSs? By empowering out users and putting the human at the top of the stack.

Pantheon aims to do this by standardizing and open-sourcing the "magic" of advanced enterprise hosting techniques, bundling the benefit of years of hard-won development experience, and making this all ubiquitously and inexpensively available via Cloud computing.

Wow, that's a lot of buzzwords.

In this session we'll blow past the hype and explain each component in the Pantheon stack: what it is, why it matters, and how it can help you take Drupal to the next level. You will learn how we utilize:

  • Pressflow
  • Varnish
  • Memcached
  • Apache Solr
  • Hudson
  • BCFG2
  • Cloud Computing (EC2, Rackspace and others)

To create what we believe is the first completely mapped-out end-to-end Drupal production process.


I only now discovered a talk

I only now discovered a talk that is very closely related to the topics you will talk about: Pantheon, Pressflow, Memcache, Cloud Computing:

Would you consider doing a joint talk? That would free up room for more topics that were dropped from the initial schedule!
