Bazaarvoice's Infrastructure with Victor Trac

We're happy to announce Victor Trac from Bazaarvoice will be speaking about their infrastructure for our August meetup!  Baazarvoice is also graciously sponsoring the meetup so we'll have food and drinks.  More details to come!


The Talk

Bazaarvoice serves traffic on some of the world's busiest websites, including giants like,, and At peak, we serve over 50,000 requests per second of highly dynamic, user-generated content to hundreds of millions of users world-wide. This presentation details the evolution of Bazaarvoice's infrastructure as we expanded from a single co-located facility, to using AWS initially as a disaster recovery solution, to eventually developing a global hybrid architecture that uses many of the best AWS features like VPC, Autoscale, ELB, and more. We'll dig deep into lessons learned as well as explain the pros and cons of our many design decisions.

    Given an audience of veritable critics, Victor was very personable, both comfortable and candid throughout his presentation of the evolution of the architecture. Tough act to follow.
