Navigating today's database scaling options can be a nightmare. Explore the compromises involved in both traditional and new architectures.

Scalable architectures: Taming the Twitter Firehose - Lorenzo Alberton from GrUSP on Vimeo.

Handling lots of real-time streams of information, when Twitter alone is producing 250+ million tweets a day and 27 million links to news and media, can be a daunting task.

This talk will cover how to develop a platform that can deal with billions of items per day, perform complex analysis and serve thousands of customers in real-time, by dissecting a large scale architecture into small components and explaining what processes to put in place, what pitfalls to avoid and how to keep the system running. We will walk through several scalability patterns, clever techniques and cutting-edge technologies, high-throughput message queues, nosql databases, monitoring tools, each accompanied by one or more concrete examples.

Understand your options for deploying a database across multiple data centers - without the headache.
