    • About Exove Established in 2006 ~45 employees in Helsinki and Tallinn A one stop shop  Technology  Concept Development  Graphic Design Web Development (LAMP platform)  Content Management (eZ Publish, WordPress, Drupal)  Custom Web Applications  Mobile Applications
    • What multisite? Multiple websites running on a single eZ Publish installation Sharing resources, guidelines and possibly design Information architecture, visual and technical aspects need to be considered
    • Visual design for efficientmultisite creation Work with a base design (grid)  Global layout changes can be done more efficiently in the future Define elements, styles, etc. that will be common and which will be variable Always assume that you will have variable text length, different items in the menu, etc.
    • Responsive Design A separate mobile site (www.example.com vs. m.example.com for example) is not ideal The ideal way is to design a single set of templates to work across all devices (Desktop, Smartphone, Tablet, ???) Design phase must be done right Possible limitations with online advertisement
    • eZ Publish Multisitefeatures A single eZ Publish can run one or more sites Virtually unlimited number of sites Each site can have a distinct design In a multi language site Sites can share content and other resources or be totally independent Using the built in permission system you can define access in a flexible manner
    • Advantages of a multisiteinstallation Shared resources  Common software resources are shared Less maintenance overhead  A single installation Cost efficient replication of existing site setups Implementing a multisite ready installation does not cost more than a single site installation
    • A few questions beforestarting development How many sites will you have?  Will you have language versions?  Do you plan to have campaign sites, etc. Discuss with your vendor about the path  Turning a single site installation to a multisite installation may be costly Performance  Estimate the performance requirements for all sites
    • Single or multiserver? We can run all our sites on a single installation, but should we?  It all depends… Splitting a service on to multiple servers is some times ideal when you have  A site with high loads, especially ones with peaks  Lots of visitors from all over the world A multiserver setup complicates resource sharing Cost will rise
