Transitioning to a Multi-tier Web Environment

TPR6 Technical: Propeller Hats Required Track

Salon H & I, 4th Floor


What do you do when you have a website on end-of-live hardware with out-of-date software, and you have new virtual machines and software to run everything? Upgrade! Not so fast. How do you upgrade without disrupting service and within a reasonable amount of time, and without endless staff resources to throw at the project? This presentation will explain how the College at Brockport upgraded its aging SAMP environment to run on a set of virtualized LAMP servers.
