Joining the CPS-VO by founding a new group was covered previously in the chapter titled Form & Manage Groups. Here we discuss creating a new Virtual Organization from ground zero.
The Computing Infrastructure
The server powering the CPS-VO deployment is currently a Dell PowerEdge r515:
The VO collaboration platform is built on top of the open-source Drupal content management platform, which powers millions of websites and applications. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world (including a dedicated Drupal Security Team, which is 40 strong). Presently, we use version 6 of the Drupal CMS.
Support Staff and Roles
The VO collaboration and content management system is a large and complex software system consisting of many layers that require configuration and maintenance.
Later, in the final chapter, we will discuss the process for an initial installation of a VO, which requires expertise in operating system administration, networking, and database management.
