In 2013 the Technical University of Dresden set out to relaunch their website. The plan was to replace the Plone2-based CMS with a modern Plone4 setup. Four years later, the process is now completed. In this talk I will present some of the challenges we met in the project and show how we did overcome them with Plone technologies:

° large-scale Plone deployment architecture

° migration of 1/2 million legacy content objects

° management of an editorial team consisting of more than 1000 members

° performance bottlenecks and their solutions

° QA with Robot Tests
