Webmail for Millions, Powered by Erlang
Recorded at:

by Scott Lystig Fritchie on Feb 02, 2011 |

Scott Lystig Fritchie presents the architecture and lessons learned implementing a webmail system in Erlang, using UBF and Hibari, a distributed key-value store, to accommodate a large user base.


Scott Lystig Fritchie works at Gemini Mobile Technologies, deploying a distributed key-value database with strong consistency semantics, micro transactions, and on-the-fly resizing, all in Erlang to support a multi-million user webmail system. He wrote for USENIX, the Erlang User Conference, and the ACM, and was the chair for the 2010 ACM SIGPLAN ICFP Erlang Workshop held in Baltimore in 2010.

The Erlang Factory is an event that focuses on Erlang - the computer language that was designed to support distributed, fault-tolerant, soft-realtime applications with requirements for high availability and high concurrency. The main part of the Factory is the conference - a two-day collection of focused subject tracks with an enormous opportunity to meet the best minds in Erlang and network with experts in all its uses and applications.
