In addition to the design, our team developed automated scripts to automate the deployment of the architecture for the Drupal platform in development, staging, and production. The USGS Store was bound to a proprietary back-end system called SAP which we were able to extend by building a custom REST API to integrate it with Drupal. The SAP back-end contains information for over 230,000 products. By using our custom API we were able to export all products successfully from SAP and import them into ElasticSearch so that any new products would be updated every day.
- The store handles around 60,000 page views per day.
- Easily capable of handling over 1,000 orders per day. So far the highest was 1,287 in one day.
- The site serves approximately 50GB of traffic per day.
- Since launch there have been over 1,000 new user registrations per day.
