Load balancing CAS, uPortal and Sakai CLE

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

  • Jorge Ovando

Thursday 6th June, 2013

8:45am to 9:30am (PST)

Creating a production environment that can support the volume of users your service will experience can be challenging on a single host. But how do you set this up on a shoe-string budget? Or how do you configure an appliance like Big IP's F5 solution? This session will cover how UC Merced started with Apache for load-balancing then switched over to F5 for both uPortal and Sakai CLE. We will cover nuts and bolts of how we configured each. As a bonus, we will share our current efforts to load balance CAS.
