Abstract

A round up of seemingly inconspicuous things that we had to deal with as we we went from zero to 200K requests/second. Things like engineering for reliable autoscaling (you don’t want to be caught off guard as traffic increases), optimising SSL handshakes to drive cost of data transfer down, how we manage deployments, alerting people when something goes down and keeping everything green so we could get good sleep.
