Video Description:

"Running today’s largest consumer bitcoin startup comes with a target on your back and requires an uncompromising approach to security. This talk explores how Coinbase is learning from the past and pulling out all the stops to build a secure infrastructure behind an irreversibly transferrable digital good for millions of users. This session will cover cloud architecture, account and network isolation in the AWS cloud, disaster recovery, self-service consensus-based deployment, real-time streaming insight, and how Coinbase is leveraging practical DevOps to build the bank of the future."


Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
