Moving from an era of vertical scaling and infrastructure resiliency to a world where reliability in the infrastructure is not assumed and application owners must start thinking about horizontal scaling and fault tolerance at higher layers can be challenging. A deep dive into what are the best practices for deploying distributed, scalable applications on cloud, where are the challenges and what solutions scale well.

Hear real world examples of how Comcast stood up an internal private cloud service leveraging OpenStack and Ceph. In less than 3 years the cloud is supporting over 500 internal customers including large scale, high performance applications such as our X1 platform and Residential Email.

A review of what architectures, tools and services work well for large scale stateless applications as well as how smaller apps tackle their deployments. Answers to where and how our apps securely manage state, store data, and plan for failure.
