How is your university's web server environment configured? (multi-server environment) How do your servers synchronize (do they maintain permissions when they sync)? Do you use a staging server for everything - or is it optional? How do your users like your setup? Do your more technical users have additional privileges?
We are thinking about reconfiguring our environment in the coming year ... and are looking for successful large scale hosting setups. Any and all information will be incredibly valuable to us!!
