Engineering for Scale at VMTurbo



Sylvia Isler presents a microservices case study and lessons learnt. She discusses how VMTurbo, in anticipation of scalability-related pain points, took the plunge to evolve its monolithic system architecture into a system based on composable microservices.


As Vice President of Architecture at VMTurbo, Sylvia Isler is responsible for the overall system design and runs the development team. Prior to joining VMTurbo, Sylvia was a senior engineer and architect in the finance industry.
