Dance Midi Samples is a long standing client of mine, I have built every iteration of this site from a startup with about 20 basic products
to the powerhouse of a site that it is currently. Built on Magento (after previously moving from Joomla) the site now has over 1000 products.
Many of the files are over 200MB each with some of the packaged products coming in at several GB, this provided a technical challenge as often
their customers have unstable internet connections. A CDN was implemented using Akamai and Bash scripts were created to handle the automatic mirroring
of files to the CDN.
The site is hosted on a VPS server with a seperate MySQL database server https://www.dancemidisamples.com
