Scaling High-availability Infrastructure in the Cloud at Twilio

A session at Web 2.0 Expo New York 2011

Tuesday 11th October, 2011

1:30pm to 2:20pm (EST)

Designing a massively scalable highly available persistence layer has been one of the greatest challenges we’ve faced building out Twilio’s cloud communications infrastructure. Robust Voice and SMS APIs have strict consistency, latency, and availability requirements that cannot be solved using traditional sharding or scaling approaches. This talk describes how we’ve divided “in-flight” and “post-flight” data into separate datastores implemented using a range of technologies. We’ll review the lessons we’ve learned building and maintaining a system that supports an API used by more than 35,000 developers.

Dr. Evan Cooke, is Co-founder and Chief Architect at Twilio.
