Altitude 2022: Riding the Request Tsunami - Scaling New Relic’s Growth.

Presented by

Andrew Hartnett, Vice President of Software Engineering at New Relic

About this talk

Continue with our 2022 Altitude Series. New Relic collects data, at a massive scale, from around the world. The company needed an edge partner that could smartly scale with its needs. Fastly's Compute@Edge helps to solve that challenge. When the New Relic data plane made the move out of its own data centers, the company needed the ability to smartly route our data to the desired “cells” in the cloud. The cells represented smaller snapshots of New Relic architecture and were deployed as separate, isolated environments containing a subset of all of our customers’ telemetry data. Pushing this routing logic as close as possible to the customer became important so partnering with an Edge partner was a must. The scale and reliability of this system became plagued with issues as New Relic was growing the number of requests 5% month over month, leading to outages for its customers. New Relic had a previous relationship with Fastly. After some due diligence looking into Fastly’s Compute@Edge, the decision was made to move the majority of this traffic. In this presentation, Andrew will be talking more in-depth about how New Relic is using Compute@Edge to deliver a reliable and performant routing solution, how they got there, and will also expand on the New Relic-Fastly partnership as they add integrations between systems and services. Join us for our next session with Sean McCarthy, Principal Product Manager, Video Technology Group, Paramount Global, for a discussion of greater innovation, significant cost and time savings and a measurably improved and personalized customer experience at Paramount. Speaker: Andrew Hartnett, Vice President of Software Engineering at New Relic
