Rootconf 2017

On service reliability

Simple recipes for building resilient and evolving infrastructure

Submitted by Pradeep Hodigere (@phodigere) on Feb 6, 2017

Section: Full talk of 40 mins duration Technical level: Intermediate Status: Rejected


Infrastructure at Instart Logic is evolving at a brisk pace. DevOps has been playing a pivotal role in its evolution. This talk covers our evolution, current technical challenges we face that are unique in the industry and a look at our processes/practices to keep up and ahead of this growth.


The talk would cover:
1. Description of our infrastructure to serve the business need
2. Evolution of the same over the years, the trade-offs made, which worked and which needed to be reworked
3. Challenges we are working on today and forsee in the next year
4. Plan to address our fast growth

Speaker bio

I’m an Infrastructure Architect, having worked in this space for 10+ years. I’ve had the opportunity to work at 3 companies, each with a distinct infrastructure layout. Yahoo! had the world’s largest infrastructure for many years, LinkedIn experienced hyper-growth, starting from a small setup to now serving a 400M+ memberbase and Instart Logic is starting to see strong growth.

We are looking to interact with others in the community who are solving technical challenges similar to ours and to exchange ideas.

    In order to evaluate your proposal, we need a much more detailed outline. Please describe your infrastructure and tell us why you think it would be interesting for Rootconf attendees. What are your plans to address your growth? What tradeoffs have you made over the years?

    If this is going to be a war_story/journey_over_the_years talk - it would be great if you could drill down the exact areas you improved - monitoring, metrics, deployment, oncall, etc. - having too many would make it a very generic talk (that’s just my opinion). It may/may_not be a x v/s y approach/tool talk but again a preview video with enough teasers of the evolution would really help the cause.
