We will dive deep into traditional web architectures and discuss what makes them go. Looking are real-life architectures, we’ll analyze weak points and discuss what will happen to them under the intense pressure of a prolonged exposure on Digg, the NYTimes or even MSN (or when traffic jumps from 15Mbits/second to over 1Gbit/second inside 30 seconds).
In a friendly atmosphere, you will enjoy a mix of anecdotes, war stories, good and bad design principles and more tips and tricks than you could use in a year.
Topics will include:
Theo Schlossnagle is President and CEO at OmniTI where he designs and implements scalable solutions for highly trafficked sites and other clients in need of sound, scalable architectural engineering. He is the architect of the highly scalable Message Systems mail transport agent. Theo is a participant in various open source communities including OpenSolaris, Linux, Apache, PostgreSQL, perl, and many others. He is a published author in the area of scalability and distributed systems as well as a veteran speaker in the open source conference circuit.
