Patrick Shuff – Building A Billion User Load Balancer – SCALE 13x – YouTube
‘Want to learn how Facebook scales their load balancing infrastructure to support more than 1.3 billion users? We will be revealing the technologies and methods we use to route and balance Facebook’s traffic. The Traffic team at Facebook has built several systems for managing and balancing our site traffic, including both a DNS load balancer and a software load balancer capable of handling several protocols. This talk will focus on these technologies and how they have helped improve user performance, manage capacity, and increase reliability.’ Can’t find the standalone slides, unfortunately.
