Apereo OAE - Architectural Overview

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Wednesday 5th June, 2013

2:45pm to 3:30pm (PST)

How does Apereo OAE work? Its architecture has been changed dramatically in the last year in an attempt to resolve a number of outstanding performance and production problems. The project now targets a much higher scale and a multi-tenant cloud-compatible deployment model, where a single installation can host multiple institutions at the same time.

This presentation will provide an overview of the different components and technologies that are being used, as well as details around deploying and configuring OAE and its associated running costs.

We will also provide a summary of the approach used for continuous nightly performance testing and how we are validating the desired (horizontal) scalability. Details around back-end and UI unit testing, code coverage and security testing will be shared and contribution models for service development and UI development will be discussed as well.
