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
