    How to handle and archive large amount of news, and still be able to get them - Umbraco 8

    Hi guys,

    We have large amount of data ( 500,000+ ) news and 500GB media. and we intend to migrate them into Umbraco, we did many POC's for this issue, we added more than 40,000 nodes to Umbraco8. and we had some issues :

    • The navigation through the backoffice was slow.
    • Saving and publishing the Parent node or any node has large number of children takes a long time.
    • Adding/Changing any documentType property takes a long time as well.
    • Something we expect to happen: displaying news will be very slow, since the cache file would be too large.

    We have found some workaround solutions, such as making an archive and move to it the old news in order not to cache the old news .. another solution was to display the active news only in Umbraco backoffice (last three months).

    Okay now my questions are :
    - What's your best solution for this issue?, how would you handle it.
    - How to archive old news, knowing that we're using Examine to retrieve nodes.. and we need to have the old news URL's still work?
    - How can we exclude the archive from the Umbraco cache?.
    - How to archive the media as well, since we have large media, we don't want the old media to appear in the Umbraco section.

    Hi Saif

    We had a similar issue in V7 for a site and this is how we approached a solution:

    If that helps provide some inspiration, but yes, main gist is News Articles need to be gettable, but not necessarily 'published' as far as Umbraco is concerned.
