Visionary and practitioner, Josh Bernstein
, provides a first-hand tour of the hyper-fast, hyper-scale world where servers number in the 100's of thousands, requests exceed 100 million per day, storage exists in the multi-Petabytes, and where open source, replication, time-to-market and distributed persistence rule all.
will illuminate how the scale-out and open source world differs from the scale-up and closed one, and how it's redefining contemporary approaches to virtualization, optimization, and more.
