Load Balancing | @CloudExpo #BigData #Cloud #CyberSecurity #AI #ML #IoT – Wed, 07 Dec 2016
Pokeman Go has been a raging success. But its launch was marred by frequent downtimes and dropped connections. In a recent chat at the Google Cloud Platform Next Conference, Niantic CTO Phil Keslin talked about the “hair on fire” experience where the team had to firefight and upgrade key components on the live production system in order to handle the unexpected surge in new users joining in. Among the various upgrades made to the system, Niantic had to replace the network load balancer with a much more sophisticated HTTP/S load balancing system that could handle a larger overall throughput and offer faster connections. Keslin says that this timely upgrade made it possible for his team to launch in Japan without an incident although the number of new user signups at this point was triple what it was during their earlier US launch.

[slides] Making Our Internet Great Again | @CloudExpo @TeridionNet #IoT #SaaS – Wed, 07 Dec 2016
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche’s slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does not address real-time apps, video, conferencing and collaboration, which is the Internet. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Elad Rave, CEO and co-founder of Teridion, discussed why.
