On Sunday night (Feb 13th), as you find yourself watching The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards live on CBS television, keep in mind that Drupal is driving GRAMMY.com once again. Lullabot's Nate Haug and Matt Westgate will be backstage monitoring website and server performance and optimization throughout the telecast. GRAMMY.com sees a phenomenal amount of traffic throughout the telecast and we've built a rock-solid server infrastructure to ensure that the website performs as well as the artists on stage!
This year's GRAMMY website was designed by our very own superstar designer, Jared Ponchot, and built by the Lullabot team. After a successful GRAMMY.com performance last year, we're excited that Drupal and Lullabot were awarded the GRAMMY project for the second year in a row.
The site features the complete nominees list, an extensive photo and video archive, a group blog, news feed, and much more. Throughout the awards ceremonies, a team of content producers, editors, and writers will be updating the site live; announcing winners, posting new photos and videos, and streaming live video with backstage interviews and additional footage which you won't find on television.
Look for a Lullabot Drupal Podcast in the near future discussing about how we built and optimized Drupal and put together a server infrastructure to handle such a high traffic, high performance website.
