Take 80k Content Nodes in 28 dimensions, a server architecture with CDN, load-balancing over three server nodes, searching with the power of elastic as well as an Azure SSO and some ‘well defined’ external SOAP and Rest interfaces, challenge a motivated agile team with it and see what we’ve learned.
