Robert Davis - Case Study: Designing a Global Scal

Thu, May 16 2013 17:00 UTC

Case Study: Designing a Global Scaled-out Architecture

How do you deliver a public-facing website on a global scale? To be truly competitive in a global market, you need to deliver a high performing website no matter what part of the world the user is in. Scaling out websites to multiple locations is easy, but it doesn’t really provide the performance required if the website has to get data from halfway around the world. This session will look at the challenges to scaling out the entire application to meet global performance requirements and how we addressed these challenges for an existing web application.
