Tutopia

Tutopia, a division of IFX Networks, wanted to create a portal for Latin America on the lines of a My Yahoo. The portal would serve as the starting point to the internet highlighting local and international information.

We created a highly scalable technical architecture to handle user personalization, dynamic content and high demand. This was accomplished with an extensively redundant design that allows the site to run on multiple servers simultaneously.

A number of feeds were incorporated from news services and other syndicated content providers such as currency rates, weather and entertainment.

Users could personalize their home page for city and interests, and could perform full text searching across multiple domains such as articles, news, listings for restaurants, entertainment, hotels and more.

We developed an extensive, custom content entry and management system that allows concurrent entries by multiple authors, in different countries.

We deployed the site including functional testing and load testing. Extensive load testing was performed to assure that the site met the high-capacity requirements.

(Tutopia.com has discontinued this strategy and now offers an augmented ISP service.)
