  2. 2. “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.” 2
  3. 3. Source: Pantheon Platform analysis;
  4. 4. Really big projects can be great for an agency. They can anchor your cashflow, let you expand your team. Or they can pull you underwater. 4
  5. 5. 5 Huge Traffic Transactions CMS as a Platform Decoupled Implementations Your Lightning + Our Thunder
  6. 6. 6 I want you to be the architects of heroic infrastructure.
  7. 7. 7 #1 Huge traffic
  8. 8. The key to withstanding internet scale surges is to not use your CMS. 8
  9. 9. Testing before you release is key. As is a bulletproof release process. 9
  10. 10. Millions of Daily Uniques? No Problem 10
  11. 11. Pantheon Architecture 11 “Computer, enhance!”
  12. 12. Pantheon Architecture: Global CDN 12
  13. 13. Pantheon Architecture: Global CDN 13
  14. 14. Pantheon Architecture: Global CDN 14
  15. 15. 15 #2 Transactions
  16. 16. E-commerce Good marketing Harnessed virality Causes Campaigns News cycles 16
  17. 17. Caching will not save you here, friends. 17
  18. 18. Customer Example: ACLU 18 “The A.C.L.U. has raised more than $24 million in online donations since Saturday, the first full day of the immigration ban, said Stephen Smith, a spokesman for the group. That is nearly seven times as much raised online in 2015, roughly $3.5 million, he added.”
  19. 19. Here’s what that actually looks like... 19 Transaction rate approaching 35x over baseline (3500/min).
  20. 20. Here’s what that actually looks like... 20 “TFW when your payment gateway has an Enterprise CDN (who will remain nameless) which decides you’re a DoS attack for a minute...”

  22. 22. Horizontal Scale 22
  23. 23. 23 #3 CMS as a Platform
  24. 24. The biggest projects are not about one particular site. They’re about a portfolio of sites. CMS as a platform. 24
  25. 25. Some Examples From our Customer Base 25
  26. 26. 26 Don’t get frozen in carbonite! The chance that you build the perfect “Product” out of the gate is low. Build one before you build a hundred.
  27. 27. We make it simple to manage sites at scale. Why not just have separate installs, even if most will be cookie cutter? Less risk. More options. 27
  28. 28. 28 You know for certain that none will deviate? Or your team is immune to human error? Or maybe the client has GoDaddy prices in mind?

  31. 31. 31 #4 Decoupled Implementations
  32. 32. Our first two iterations of the Pantheon dashboard were a decoupled. 32
  33. 33. Service oriented architecture is liberating for development. It provides structure for parallel tracking teams. 33
  34. 34. But that means you need a real deployment process, for all the pieces. Everyone’s QA environments need to talk, otherwise they’re useless. 34
  35. 35. When decoupling content, you need a tool like our Global CDN to deliver an awesome experience. 35
  36. 36. 36 In Conclusion
