Entransit Content Deployment
Do you need a high performance dynamic website? Or have a development team heavily invested in traditional technologies such as PHP, Java, or Microsoft .NET? Does your system administrator wear a pager to respond to any network outage? Then Entransit can provide an enormous value to you.
Plone is an excellent content production system: authors love it, editors love it, developers are comfortable with its flexibility and openness. Plone is the platform to produce and manage your content. But what about content delivery? What does that look like in your organization? You will have less hassle, more flexibility and better performance delivering content with Entransit.
- Assuring uptime for any system is hard work. And expensive. When you use Entransit to deliver content through a system that you know how to keep running, you have one less system to worry about. Who wants to wear two pagers?
- Search technologies like Statify, Autonomy or FAST can greatly improve content discovery on your web site. If you've already invested in a search system, or are thinking about it, Entransit is right up your alley, making it easy to keep your search engine indexes updated when content is added, updated, or removed from your website.
- High performance is a critical (and often underestimated) need. Entransit lets you deliver content from a lighter-weight system, and you won't have to start performance optimizations on a whole new system. For even better performance, Entransit makes it easy to use advanced caching solutions such as Squid, RADWare, or CacheExpress.
- Ease of adoption at your organization is paramount. Do you already have skilled developers working with PHP, Perl, Microsoft .NET, or Java? Let Entransit bring the content to them, where they can use the development tools and technology they're already using. There is no need for all developers to learn the Plone technology stack.
The Entransit Content Delivery System allows a hybrid approach to content management that creates an open source alternative to expensive mid-tier content management systems. Until the release of Entransit, Plone only allowed a "suite" approach to content management and delivery. What's the hybrid approach all about? See the May 18, 2005 CMS Watch Article, Suites vs Best of Breed, which gives a business overview of these two approaches to content management.
But the best part is that now, with Entransit, Plone can function in both ways. Entransit lets your organization use your technology on your terms. Pick and choose how you want to use the Plone Content Management System.
