Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For November 4, 2011

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For November 4, 2011:

You're in good hands with HighScalability

  • Netflix - Cassandra, AWS, 288 instances, 3.3 million writes per second.

  • Quotable quotes:

    • @bretlowery : "A #DBA walks into a #NoSQL bar, but turns and leaves because he couldn't find a table."

    • @AdanVali : HP to Deploy Memristor Powered SSD Replacement Within 18 Months

    • @eden : Ori Lahav: "When planning scalability, think x100, design x5 and deploy x1.5 of current traffic"

    • @jkalucki : If you are IO bound, start with your checkbook!

  • Everything I Ever Learned About JVM Performance Tuning @Twitter. Learn how to tune your Hotspot and other Javasutra secrets.

  • By moving off the cloud Mixipanel may have lost their angel status. Why would they do such a thing? Read Why We Moved Off The Cloud for the details. The reason for the fall:  highly variable performance. Highly variable performance is incredibly hard to code or design around (think a server that normally does 300 queries per second with low I/O wait suddenly dropping to 50 queries second at 100% disk utilization for literally hours). It’s solvable, certainly, but with lots of time and money and it’s hard to justify the cost when there’s a better alternative available. On reddit. On Hacker News. Is that a bell I hear?
