  Subject: [users@httpd] Web Farm Ideas


      I am coming up with ideas for building a new farm. We currently run CF and Apache on
a bunch of decent sized boxes, headed by a set of F5's. We have an isolated Dev Environment.
The current framework for putting stuff into production is homegrown, and in need of an overhaul,
I just want to see if there is something out there to assist, or if our model is wrong at
this point. We do a bit over a billion hits per annum.  Now, I would like to brainstorm architectural

  Workflow as it is now:

  Developer works on dedicated dev server->

  Developer goes to web interface in order to select items to go into production (php/rsync)

  Submit process "stages" selected files (copies them into a local heirarchy) ->

  Cron syncs that local "staging area" to the production servers.


  How do larger organizations do this? 
  How are uploads handled? 
  Shared storage? 

  I think I'm just looking for other ideas. 

  Any input would be great.
