ACT provides a Web site hosting service for sites maintained in the CMS. ACT uses a Web server cluster to propagate content across multiple physical servers. This maximizes uptime in case one of the servers becomes disabled for any reason.
The Web server cluster runs Apache and exceeds the specifications recommended by Hannon Hill for the CMS. More information can be found in the System Architecture section below.
Provided clients maintain a Web server environment that meets the requirements for website hosting, it is an option to have a client Web site hosted in a datacenter outside of ACT. An evaluation of the client's datacenter will take place to ensure it meets the requirements to host the Web site.
The following outlines the system architecture based on the Web hosting option chosen by the client.
