As part of ILTechTalks week, we are happy to invite you to the following talk:

In this session Yiftach Shoolman, Co-Founder and CTO of Redis Labs, will share tips on how the company manages 50,000+ scalable and highly avaliable Redis databases over the 4 largest public clouds, 8 leading Platforms-as-a-Service, and across 10 geographical regions. He will explain the service's back-end architecture, the open-source projects it uses, and which tools the company builds in-house. Shoolman will also share what Redis Labs' small DevOps team does automatically, and what it still does manually. Finally, he'll offer advice on how to build a strong R&D team that lives and breathes DevOps.

Since the company launched its Redis Cloud service, it has dealt with 150+ node failure events and a half-dozen complete data-center outages. In addition, its team has experienced many interesting scenarios, such as hard to believe scaling patterns like 0 to a few hundreds gigabytes of in-memory data in just a few minutes, and 0 to 300K+ ops/sec in just a few seconds. Attend this session to hear lessons learned from all of these experiences.

Talk will be at floor 5.
