Presentation: Operational Scalability in the Next Generation Web World

by Abel Avram on Jul 24, 2008 |

In this presentation filmed during JAOO 2007, Wayne Fenton, Director of Architecture at eBay Inc., talks about the ways in which software architects can design systems for much-improved efficiency and reliability from an operational perspective.

The World Wide Web has given birth to a new generation of operational structures which has challenged the software architects, designers, and production managers to find new ways to address the performance, scalability, reliability and availability needs associated with such structures. The application architects, accustomed with large applications running on several systems, need to re-think their approach when it comes to very large applications distributed on hundreds or thousands of systems serving millions of customers.

Wayne covers the following topics: configuration discovery and management, server/application provisioning, application monitoring and alerting, HW/power optimization, and disaster planning.

The presentation is 48 minutes long and is accompanied by 18 slides.

Operational Scalability in the Next Generation Web World by John Hollister

This presentation seems to begin somewhere in the middle. Am I missing something?

Could we get the full slide deck? by Joel Confino

It looks like the beginning of the presentation is cut off, but maybe we could at least see the full slide deck? It looks like things start around slide 8, and I'm very interested in what slides 1-7 say (OK, slide 1 is just the title, so how about slides 2-7).

The slides are online here:

jaoo.dk/aarhus2007/tracks/show_track.jsp?trackO...

Alas one needs a username and password to access them - as the video's been made public I guess I'm wondering why the slides aren't especially as they are played inline with the video.

I'm also suspecting the video starts somewhere in the middle because the cameraman was late as was the steward who should've introduced Wayne. Ooops....

Re: Could we get the full slide deck? by Floyd Marinescu

Hey guys, since JAOO sessions are no more than one hour long, and this video indicates 47 minutes, it seems that probably about 5 minutes or so are missing from the beginning. I suspect that the speaker started their session early since neither the track host nor the camera man were prepared.

That's a shame.

Back to the original question then - is there any chance we will get to see the whole slide deck?
