Website Hosting, Year in Review 2017

Consolidated Drupal-hosted websites onto a single platform

  • Migrated over 650 sites to the cloud-hosting provider Acquia. Moving to Acquia yields many benefits, like enhanced traffic-management and security. Acquia handles patching and server maintenance, saving significant staff time, and can instantly add hardware to avoid overwhelming websites at peak traffic times.
  • Shut down servers that previously hosted UI websites on premises. About 80 servers, a combination of server clusters and virtual servers, were decommissioned.
