Jon Brisbin tells the story of how his company of 30,000 employees moved from an ancient system to making their own private cloud based on vSphere, tcServer, RabbitMQ, and a REST framework over the period of one year. He presents the minimum requirements needed to create such a cloud, underlining the advantages brought by virtualization, parallelism, and asynchronicity.
Jon is responsible for architecting and implementing the computing infrastructure required to deploy cutting-edge Web 2.0 browser-based applications for NPC, the world's largest Pizza Hut franchisee. He maintains a farm of Ubuntu Linux VMs that comprise NPC's private cloud as well as develops new utilities, libraries, and even whole web frameworks for the development team at NPC to leverage.

Re: Waste of time
Again though, it'd be nice if it were shorter. Better still would be a panel of 5-6 dudes like this, who solved a similar set of problems in a similar way, where they each give 10 minute overviews of their architecture choices, and then discuss pros & cons of each. Anyone know of any talks like that?
