Alfresco's Scalability Blueprint 5.1

Alfresco is a highly adaptable and scalable platform. The Alfresco 5.1 scalability blueprint outlines the dimensions of scale and new techniques and best practices for achieving them - using the latest versions of Alfresco and based on our latest One billion document benchmark findings. The scalability blueprint covers material including:

  • What are the dimensions of scalability in an Alfresco ECM architecture?
  • What techniques can be used to scale along each of the dimensions?
  • When is it appropriate to explore vertical or horizontal scaling strategies?
  • How does Alfresco perform on defined reference environments as the dimensions of scale change?
