Scalable Architectures: Taming the Twitter Firehose

A session at phpDay 2012

Friday 18th May, 2012

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

Handling lots of real-time streams of information, when Twitter alone is producing 330+ million tweets a day and 35 million links to news and media, can be a daunting task.
This talk will cover how to develop a platform that can deal with billions of items per day, perform complex analysis and serve thousands of customers in real-time, by dissecting a large scale architecture into small components and explaining what processes to put in place, what pitfalls to avoid and how to keep the system running. We will walk through several scalability patterns, clever techniques and cutting-edge technologies, high-throughput message queues, nosql databases, monitoring tools, each accompanied by one or more concrete examples.
