Andy Parsons, CTO of the rapidly growing startup Bookish, gives a presentation about his "battle scars" earned while overseeing the rapid scaling-up of his company's web services.

Parsons talks about running PostgreSQL, Ruby, Solr, and Scala instances on the EC2 cloud, which allowed his team many options for scaling infrastructure but also introduced a number of challenges.

This talk will be useful for anyone considering implementing a similar architecture.
