Polyglot Parallelism: A Case Study in Using Erlang and Ruby at Rackspace
Recorded at:

by Phil Toland on Oct 02, 2012 |

Phil Toland discusses using Erlang and Ruby providing backup for 20k network devices running in 8 datacenters across 3 continents for Rackspace’s operations.


Phil Toland is a senior developer at Rackspace Hosting where he automates network devices against their will and often his own better judgment. He has worked with Erlang professionally since 2008 and Ruby since 2006. Before that he worked on a number of interesting problems ranging from wavelet image compression in C++ to oilfield instrumentation systems using Java.

This year’s Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2012 had an A-list sell-out line-up of speakers which included Erlang Inventors Mike Williams and Robert Virding discussing software approaches used in the industry and the unique features of the Erlang VM and a Keynote talk from Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation.
