Section: Full talk Technical level: Intermediate Status: Rejected


Make audience leave with understanding issues in web application traffic management and best practices to apply to avoid those.


Front end of the web applicaiton that handles the traffic to the service has major impact on its user experinece. This involves load balancing,security,service performance management (compression, connection pooling, content based routing), scalability and availability. Typically these are addressed individually and in isolation. That results in increased complexity of devops modules and lack of coordination between functionality and people who own them. This session goes over all the pitfalls due to this approach and common best practices to over come some of the failures we see in handling these collectively.
