The website of the German Alpine Club is mouthpiece and source of information at the same time for one of the biggest clubs in Germany with approximately 1 million members.
Several factors had to be taken into account for a successful relaunch of the club’s website: Comprehensive contents need to be changed easily and at any time by different editors. At the same time both the content management system as well as the underlying hosting services have to maintain its stable performance in times of high traffic. Moreover, the website shall be delivered optimally for different display sizes and offer users an interesting and exciting online experience.
These requirements could be met by using:
- the Chameleon content management system with innovative teaser and image management
- a dynamic teaser concept
- a scalable AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud-based hosting
- MemcacheD as object caching
- a separate webserver for static contents for CDN (content delivery network) distribution
