Forum OpenACS Q&A: How many users of ACS are there?
of .WRK-style intranet software, that claimed: "Today we're
providing knowledge sharing for 250,000 users. -- tomorrow we'll
welcome another 800."
So I was thinking: How many users do we have?
To be fair, we should probably only count intranety sites like
ShareNet, Sloanspace, AISEC, etc., and not "straight" web sites like
greenpeace.org. But a web site with both a public and an internal
side to it should obviously count the internal side.
So can we get a count? What sites are there, and how many people use
It has about a dozen subsites, 80 users, 400 files, 1000 post and 200 tickets.
We also have one dotLRN site. 1000+ users.
We also have some sites that does not qualify to be intranety but has alot of users. Like a site like hotmail although it does not deliver email but telegrams. A site wherein you buy online courses and view your webcasts. I guess thats it for us.
We built our own CMS - that should be redistributed by then as well. Til will help us on that.
has 28,000 users.
Gregor, is there a user count for UN Staffnet?
Opa, tudo bem Cristian? Que bom ver outro Brasileiro por aqui!
It's nice to see OpenACS being used in Brazil. Are you guys using 3.x or 4.x?
I talked to the folks from Procergs (IT company for the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, organizers of the very successful International Free Software Forums in Brazil) at LinuxWorld and they want to work with me and others to translate dotlrn to Portuguese so they can use it on their universities.
So hopefully soon OpenACS will be used more widely in Brazil. I'd love to hear about your use of it in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Mydomain.com service has over 100,000 active users.
That brings the total to 323,039
We have a heavily modified ACS running behind our official website and communities, and OpenACS in two testing machines. We were working hard to get e-learning working under ACS but kinda dropped it waiting for dotLRN.
We chose an Oracle DB mostly because of Intermedia - PorsGres isn't quite there yet when it comes to sws, for example, and it's very important for us to have that working. Eventually we plan on dropping ACS and Ora and migrating to Postgres+OpenACS, but not in a near future. It would take a long time to port all the mods we worked on ACS to OpenACS, and with only a small team for R&D and diagnosys, it would be overkill.
We've been working on some OpenACS modules we don't use in our our regular jobs, like ecommerce (wich doesn't require Ora), because it's fun, we learn a lot and maybe we could get a "consulting" gig for small business if it works straight.
Ja deu pre ver que o esse forum nao suporta acentuacao. Isso nos deu uma enorma dor de cabeca =)
Nos vamos nos mantendo ocupados, por assim dizer.
according to the UN Staffnet count, there are about 51484 users - constantly changing. The System will soon be ported to OpenACS 4.5 - hopefully.
Its only a simple site, but its a good example of what you can have for less than five grand. Its also got a supplier based CMS, which isn't publicly visible, but is pretty neat.
