  • Building a hosting platform with Python

    by Andrew Godwin

    At ep.io we built a Python hosting platform from the ground up, designed to run large numbers of web applications on a small number of physical machines both securely and in a reasonably scalable way. This talk will show you how we built our infrastructure - using Redis, eventlet, PostgreSQL and more - and what lessons we learnt from our first few thousand deploys.

    See how we split services into multiple processes and greenthreads; the pains of building a cooperatively-multitasking PTY module; how Redis isn't the answer to everything, but is still very useful; how to persuade third-party software to work securely in a shared environment; and how important it is to have good logging, especially when you have more than five servers.

    At 3:30pm to 4:30pm, Monday 20th June
