Drupal was written long before the DevOps movement or since the introduction of “the cloud”. As it stands, many infrastructure engineers do not readily identify with how Drupal runs on a system and how to get it to run in a scalable manner.
This session will introduce how Drupal works and how the system should be configured for it to run efficiently. Further, we will also talk about the parts of Drupal which can be replicated for a scalable environment and associated concerns. We will also talk about general practices for better performance by using external systems.
This talk is mainly for engineers who are familiar with how modern infrastructure works and how to build scalable applications but don’t know how to install Drupal on that infrastructure.
