Site Size Guidelines-Templates and CMS - Carnegie Mellon University

Site Size Guidelines

While the CMS does not set any site size quotas, certain types of site growth may have performance or storage implications. Please contact us to discuss your site if you anticipate any of the following:

  • The site will contain more than 500 pages
  • The site will contain a collection of files (e.g., PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, images, movies) which exceeds 1 GB in total size

For sites containing large files or large collections of files, we recommend storing those particular files outside the CMS if possible, while keeping the rest of the site in the CMS. If your site is served on www.cmu.edu, this can be done using the Andrew Web Publishing System (AWPS) or CMU's Box Cloud Storage.
