High performance infrastructure (October)

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.

Bio: David Mytton is the founder of Server Density, a SaaS tool which helps you provision and monitor your infrastructure. Based in the UK, David has been programming in Python and PHP for over 10 years, was one of the earliest production MongoDB users (founding the London MongoDB User Group), co-founded the Open Rights Group and can often be found cycling in London or drinking tea in Japan.

    I've received a spot too late, I did some plans before it, so I cannot assist.
    Have fun!

      Will there be a recording of this to view - post fact? Thanks.

    • Stephen T.

      Hi Libby - sadly not. I must confess I am not particularly clued up on recording options and I don' t have the hardware in any case. It's on my "to do" list to try and get some recorded/streamed in 2014 once I find someone to take on the technical challenges!

    What a shame, was looking forward to this, but can't make the new date.

      Sorry Anna, it was a mix up with the venue. We are limited to the venues we can get for free so beggars can't always be choosers! Hopefully we'll see you at another one!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
