The Tale of a Server Infrastructure

A session at Frozen Rails 2012

Thursday 20th September, 2012

2:30pm to 3:00pm (HMT)

This talk will explain how we got drunk and lost track of our servers, how we sobered up and still had a hard time administrating them, and how we finally managed to get on top of our server infrastructure and transform the architecture into the shiny majestic thing it is today. It is a survival story of sorts, where a Zookeeper and a Chef comes to the aid of a young newcomer trying to make it big in the bustling scene of startups.

This talk will discuss the architecture of our app and server infrastructure at Flowdock. We will talk about importance of decoupling in order to:
* ease development and maintenance
* scale your app
* maintain high-availability
* impress your friends with your architecture layout
* keep a zoo
