Scaling Data and Apps in the Cloud – Data Masters
November 12, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC-5
Ever wonder how apps like WhatsApp and Evernote were able to scale from tiny prototypes to huge successes with millions of users in such a short period of time?
At this meetup event, we will be discussing an important topic for young, high-growth companies: Scaling. How do you take a new product and make it scale from a handful of users to thousands or millions without spending a ton of money and without downtime?
Believe it or not, scaling is more of an art than a science. New developments in the area of infrastructure automation and high availability (you know… the “cloud”) have empowered new products to scale like never before. But only if you know how to leverage those cool new tools.
During this event, we will go over some of the road blocks companies and developers face when scaling up new products, and how to address them. We will talk about some of the emerging technologies that are now becoming available, and how they can be used to break through that glass ceiling of performance and uptime.
We will also go over some scaling roadmaps based on a few product examples, where you can actually see possible options at each scaling threshold. And we will open the floor up for discussions for anybody who would like to offer their experiences with scaling products!
