Data Storage at Librato with Dave Josephsen

For this meetup, we are excited to be joined by Dave Josephsen, Developer Evangelist over at Librato to share his experience with data storage and how Librato uses Cassandra.

What You'll Learn at this Meetup:

Librato runs a distributed multi-tenant time-series data storage, analysis, and alerting platform as a service. In this talk we describe our internal data processing and storage infrastructure, which relies heavily on Apache’s Storm and Cassandra projects to process over 200,000 writes per second and store nearly 10 billion data samples. We give infrastructure details, recounting our initial design decisions as well as various scaling challenges that have forced us to refactor our storage designs. Finally we live-demo our storage infrastructure dashboards and relate the system and application metrics that we’ve found useful in monitoring Cassandra for performance and reliability.

We hope to see you there!

At Librato he hacks on tools and documentation, blogs about statistics, systems monitoring, alerting, metrics collection and visualization, and generally does anything and everything he can think of to help engineers close the feedback loop in their systems.

    Hey guys, we talked a little bit about the size of our C* instances and I wasn't sure what size they were. I followed up with my team and found out that we're currently using hi1.4xl's and m2.4xl's Thanks for lending me the soapbox

    Sharing use cases is a great topic in general for the group. Look forward to hearing about Librato's use case.

    Looking at the publication page, that's pretty impressive! Plus we use Nagios to monitor our system, so that presentation seems to be very interesting.
