Oxfam America's Plone website raises 14 Million in Tsunami Relief

Enfold Systems, a Zea network member, delivers value and enterprise scalability with the Plone Open Source Platform

Oxfam America is a Boston-based non-profit international development and relief agency and an affiliate of Oxfam International. Oxfam works with partners in more than two dozen countries to combat global poverty and social injustice by promoting development and human rights and assisting in humanitarian emergencies.

A primary goal of the new Oxfam America's website was to implement a system that could scale to meet Oxfam's growing organization and donor base for years to come. When the Tsunami crisis occurred, the system was put to the test. "In the course of ten days during the Tsunami crisis, Oxfam had almost half of its typical yearly visits, and almost 1/3 of its yearly bandwidth - the system performed beautifully", said Internet Manager Nicholas Rabinowitz. "Our public website offered timely, critical content to our users, while providing a solid gateway to our online donation system."

"The Oxfam America website demonstrates that open source content management software can be used to deliver enterprise quality systems", said Alan Runyan, President of Enfold Systems and architect of the original version of Plone®. The usability, functionality and sustained throughput the configuration provides can service Oxfam America for years to come.
