Real Life Example of Scaling Load Balancing Using Open Source on Commodity Hardware - Pavlos Parissis, Booking.com

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In order to increase the availability of your application, you place it behind a load balancer. Problem solved but another one is created! How do you make sure this upper layer doesn't become a bottleneck for you? Does it have enough capacity when you go full-on with HTTPS? You need it to be fast, resilient and easy to scale. In this talk I'll present how you combine network protocols and open source software to resolve these problems.
