Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications (DEISA) has chosen the Produce & Publish platform for producing high-quality PDF documents for their online documentation. DEISA, the Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications, is a consortium of leading national supercomputing centres that aims at fostering pan-European world-leading computational science research. DEISA deploys and operates a consistent, production quality, distributed supercomputing environment with continental scope. It aims at delivering a turnkey operational solution for a future European HPC ecosystem. 

The Produce & Publish platform - and in particular the Authoring Environment delivered to DEISA - is a key component for editing and maintaining any kind of documentation through the Plone CMS. The Authoring Environment enables DEISA to generate print-ready PDF documents directly from their web content. We added features like a clickable table-of-contents, PDF bookmarks for chapters and sections, alternating page numbering, numbering and captions for tables and images and many more. The single-source publishing approach also allows DEISA to provide both chapter-wise HTML output + chapter-wise PDF documents (with optional support for cover pages).

Now that our customised "Produce and Publish Authoring Environment" from ZOPYX is in operation and has already been used successfully to publish the current DEISA Primer and User Documentation, and since we now make heavy use of the related PDF converter which allows us to generate and publish high quality PDF versions of these documents....I want to stress that the DEISA project is very pleased with the ZOPYX products we received...
