Technology challenges

    From Strategic Planning
    Data security *Insufficient offsite backups of site and Foundation office data
    *High vulnerability to internal sabotage and natural disasters
    Site reliability * Sites are subject to short-term outages
    *Limited standardization and automation leaves room for human error
    *Dependence on one data center could lead to long term outages
    Site performance * Insufficient data exists to evaluate response time and download time
    *The front and back end need to be harmonized to ensure optimal user experience
    Capacity * Current media upload capacity is low
    * A significant increase in participation, or Web 2.0 features such as chat, or real-time collaboration would dramatically increase demands on servers and require a reevaluation of the scaling strategy
