A corporate Web site is the virtual representation of a corporation or organization on the Internet. Corporate Web sites face numerous problems due to their large size and complexity, and the nonscalability of the underlying Web infrastructure. Current solutions to these problems generally rely on traditional scaling techniques such as caching and replication. These are usually too restrictive, however taking a one-size-fits-all approach and applying the same solution to every document. We propose Globe as a foundation upon which to build scalable corporate Web sites, and introduce GlobeDoc, a Web site model based on Globe distributed shared objects. The paper describes GlobeDoc, highlighting the design and technical details of the infrastructure.
