Hosting www.total.com in 2014, what does it mean ?

This session has been declined by the session moderation team.

Total is a French multinational integrated oil and gas company and one of the five "Supermajor" oil companies in the world. We have the pleasure, at Smile, to develop and to host many of its Drupal websites, including its flagship: www.total.com.

Considering the size and activity sector of Total, hosting it is quite a challenge, and 2014 was a special year for both Drupal and Total.

Let's have look behind the scenes and discover how our team worked with Drupal, through the following subjects:

  • Deploying a high-end architecture (CDN, Varnish, Automated bynary compression,...)
  • Mastering worldwide content delivery
  • Coping with eco/cyber-terrorist attacks
  • Surviving Drupageddon
  • Getting huge traffic peaks the day Christophe de Marjori (CEO) died
