mod_perl Success Story: BBC

This was sent to the mod_perl mailing list today:

We have been running ModPerl to deliver dynamic applications as part of bbc.co.uk for the past 4 years. At present we have well over 50 applications ( and growing ) using Modperl and based on the Apache::Registry framework. These include community, message boards, games, voting, quizzes, searches and listings applications. It serves a sustained 500 application requests per second using a distributed architecture.

As we have adopted Apache 2.* on our head-end servers we will next be looking at how Modperl 2.* can help us in our application layer.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
