Scaling Pinterest

A session at Percona Live: MySQL Conference And Expo 2012

Thursday 12th April, 2012

11:00am to 11:50am (PST)

Pinterest.com has grown to 2.5 billion page views per month in just under a year, and the number one question we're asked at parties is "what's in your stack?" Sit back while we take you on a tour of our current architecture, the lessons learned along the way, and the successes. We'll focus on how we sharded our MySQL database, the process of splitting a shard, caching mechanisms, and server management. We'll also touch on the conveniences and challenges of building today's most modern web infrastructures on Amazon's EC2.
