Some Considerations for Scaling: What We Did At New Relic

A session at GOTO Aarhus 2012

Wednesday 3rd October, 2012

2:30pm to 3:20pm (CET)

In four years, New Relic has grown from a dozen customers to over 25,000 customers, and from collecting hundreds of metrics a day to collecting billions a day. We've done this without a huge investment in hardware - which is very cool. This talk will cover some of the ways we built a system that has scaled so effectively. Sharding, of course, but sharding is not magic; caching, of course, but caching is not magic; hardware improvements, of course, but ... well, you get the idea. There is no one magic solution but a combination a number of strategic decisions.
