Blisstering Case Study: Multi-lingual and multi-locale websites for one of the world's largest television franchise

Case Study: How Blisstering created multi-lingual and multi-locale websites of one of the world’s largest television franchise


Customer Overview:
This franchise has multiple television channels that are broadcast across the world. Each channel has their own website which displays the schedule, plays videos, displays shows, social media comments, and so on.

Project Overview:



Their previous websites were built ad hoc and had a single database, hence single point of failure. There were other issues with their architecture such as performance bottlenecks, no separation between sites in the backend, and so forth.



Blisstering developed a Drupal multi-site architecture where all sites were merged into a single stack. Having multiple DBs, along with caching and query optimization, allowed us to avoid performance bottlenecks.


Each site has its own separate DB thus aiding ease of separation and addition of new websites. Drupal’s compatible modules can be used as-is. Single installation of Drupal makes it easier to administer and maintain.
