The buzz surrounding the new version of Sitecore–8.2–has not died down yet. Having upgraded from last year’s 8.1 version, the new version has many added features. Among the changes that has been brought about, Sitecore Publishing Service is one of them. The new features included in this service will improve publishing performance for enterprise customers.
In Sitecore 8.2, one can publish large volume (think 100,000 or more items) across various data centers and locations. This is also the very first step in using the new ASP.NET Core 1.0 framework with Sitecore.
But before we go any further, here’s a look at the enhancements that this version of Sitecore brings with it:
The new Sitecore Publishing Service has features like a separated publishing system developed using the ASP.Net CORE 1.0 framework, REST API to control the service and SPEAK UI to show queued publishing tasks, complete with their current status, it offers many added benefits to users. Here are some of them:
The new Sitecore Publishing Service is an add-on feature. This means that the existing version still remains enabled by default and one would have to manually install service to get it going. Once installed and activated, it cannot be used in parallel with the older version, but it is possible to switch back to the previous version when required.
Sitecore Publishing Service is made up of two components:
Once the Publishing Service is installed, Sitecore Package needs to be installed. If you already have the previous version of Sitecore, just update the PublishingServiceUrlRoot to the URL of the new Sitecore Publishing Service. A number of online tests have been run to check the efficiency of Sitecore Publishing Service 1.1. Default publishing of 100,000 items took 90 minutes, parallel publishing took 25 minutes, and parallel publishing with optimizations took 15 minutes against the Publishing Service 1.1 that took just four minutes to complete the same task.
