Ensemble documentation home
New content! New site organization! Have a look around at the Ensemble documentation site. We're still renovating so things will keep changing through Summer 2022.
What is Ensemble
Ensemble is the common name for the content management system used to host websites for Virginia Tech internet domains.
Currently, Ensemble uses Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) as its back-end infrastructure and supports more than 800 websites. This is a locally installed and heavily modified version of AEM that is unique to Virginia Tech. The server configuration consists of one content authoring node, two publishers, and four dispatchers.
The primary audiences for sites hosted in Ensemble are prospective students, research partners, and prospective donors to the university.
How is information about Ensemble arranged
The content of this website is arranged by user role agnostic information–getting started, faq, support, tools–and user role specific information for the three roles–author, publisher, webadmin.
Utility classes enable functionality within the Ensemble CMS. See what formatting and utility features are available.
Widgets are combinations of components, classes, and content that yield a specific look within the One theme. They aren't components, yet.
