This project was specifically designed to be modular in nature to allow for ongoing development of new features and modules. It also incorporates a separate design and menu system to allow an update to roll out across all pages with a single update. Even the core of the design code base can be updated independent of the programming allowing for fast upgrades when the code base has a new release rolled out. It is setup on the Amazon Cloud (AWS) with auto scaling of web servers to handle traffic surges and is split up across separate servers for image hosting, database records, and the main site programming to allow for efficient load balancing. It is also setup to allow for rapid increases (spin ups) in resources allocated for extremely heavy traffic and usage patterns.
