Tech Workshop: Distributed Cloud Migration Tactics & Success Story
Tim Vereecke - Principal Web Performance Architect Akamai
About this talk
Scalemates.com, the largest scale-modeling website in the world, reached a breaking point with regards to their data center in Germany. The company serves a global audience, handles translation into 16 languages, and has 6 million pageviews. Most of this traffic previously routed through this data center, resulting in significant performance degradation and bottlenecks.
In this interactive workshop, we will uncover the design choices, challenges, and best practices when migrating Scalemates.com from a single data center to a distributed, automated cloud architecture on Akamai and Linode.
We then explain how your company can utilize these migration tactics, and the Scalemates.com success story, to facilitate your own distributed cloud journey. The conversation includes:
• How to understand the problem (speed of ultra-dynamic content)
• The various design options
• Future improvements based on the Linode roadmap
