About this Website

This is a broad overview of the achitecture behind this website, and credits and appreciation for the several open source tools used. Briefly, it runs on a Drupal CMS, served by nginx and varnish.

Design Architechture

The look and feel design is based on a touch sensitive responsive (HTML5+CSS3) mobile theme, which has been adapted by our website consultants and designers in IITB.

Software Architecture

The webiste is rendered and managed by Drupal content management system, which is an extensive and modular php + MySql based framework. It runs off an Ubuntu server, based on the debian GNU/Linux operating system. The public face of the website is served by varnish cache, which has its backend served by nginx, monitored by munin, and load tested with apache jMeter.

Hardware Architecture

The entire system runs off two virtual machines managed and served by proxmox on a KVM.
