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.

Growing adoption of Drupal

623 UI sites using Drupal
  • More units on campus are utilizing the Drupal content-management system, resulting in cost savings, greater expertise, and sharing of custom-developed modules.

Implemented Drupal Digital Signage Service for campus-wide use


Deployed compute sticks to power digital signs

  • Standardized hardware is easier for IT professionals to support.

  • In addition to digital signs, the sticks are being used to power kiosks, swipe stations, and TIPSEA room schedulers on campus.
