Tempering our Production Practices

About the Session

Applications in the cloud face issues day in and day out - hardware failures, software issues, network problems etc. Despite all this, we want our application to be highly available and scalable, which brings out the need for a certain quality in them: resiliency. Join us to find out how we learned from past experiences / best practices and came up with some ideas to toughen the product and our practices to ensure that performance and availability are always high. Some of the topics covered in this talk, include:

  • Auto scaling our application and background processing framework
  • Reducing blast radius during incidents
