Description: Achieving high performance is partly to do with your code but it still really depends on how you deploy your infrastructure.
Dedicated vs cloud? In memory vs on disk? Spindal vs SSD? Multi data centre deployments?
This talk will consider all the infrastructure requirements of a successful high performance infrastructure with hints and tips that can be applied to setup. It will include things like OS tweaks, disk benchmarks, replication, monitoring and backups plus considerations for the overall architecture.
