TL;DR Tech talk on scalable web infrastructure as a service.
- Get $6,000 of free web hosting over 6 months
- Talk to Telemachus, if you'd be interested in a pure SSD based scriptable cloud VPS
- BTW... H/F doesn't get kickbacks or affiliate fees from NephoScale. We just like the service
A couple years ago when I was in "build a search engine" mode, I spent a lot of time nerdgasming about high availability infrastructure, scalability, etc...
I've been rolling my own PC's, boxes and servers for a while, and frankly, it's ton of fun.
I was also frustrated at the lack of SSD based offerings with cloud services. AWS and EC2 have painfully low IOPS on their vanilla Elastic Block.
So, I wanted a provider that offered SSD based dedicated servers as well as scriptable cloud VPS as well.
I ended up choosing NephoScale.
Telemachus is the founder and CTO, and we've spent a ton of time talking about these topics. Telemachus has been doing infrastructure stuff for well over a decade. Bruce his co-Founder landed Industrial Light and Magic's ( yeah, that I.L.M. ) network services contract in a past life and is a total baller.
I love what they're doing.
So, we've worked with NephoScale to offer H/F startups that qualify in our community $6k worth of free hosting. ( H/F Perks Invite link here) and asked Telemachus to give a Tech Talk. Hope you learn a lot. -- Jonathan
