Massive Scalability

One server is not always enough. This talk will go through the process of scaling websites and professionals systems to survive sudden (or planned) increase in traffic or utilization. The usual suspects will be covered (software load balancing, multi-master database, persistent caching, cloud computing, shared storage, ...) in a programming language agnostic way.

The presentation will be centered around real life cases that I've experienced through day-to-day business of Les Laboratoires Phoenix.

Presentation could be made in English or in french, as to accommodate the largest audience.
