Apereo OAE Bootcamp - Part 1

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

Sunday 2nd June, 2013

8:30am to 12:00pm (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 a very detailed overview of the overall architecture and the different components and technologies. We will take a closer look into all of the following components and how they are being used:

  • Node.js
  • OAE Widgets
  • Apache Cassandra
  • ElasticSearch
  • Redis
  • Nginx
  • RabbitMQ

We will also talk about 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 as well.
