ALA production environment - AtlasOfLivingAustralia/documentation Wiki

Introduction

The Atlas of Living Australia has been running since 2008, with its first system going live in 2010. The key stakeholders for the Atlas are the zoological collections and herbaria of Australia. The Atlas is a single infrastructure that supports a number of front end (and separately branded) portals.

The main differences are that the hosts have changed, and there is now use of AWS load balancers and AWS virtual machines, and there are near future changes to switch Cassandra to a cluster version rather than a single node:
